Barely 24 hours after graduating as a trained medical doctor in the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Dr. Urueye Stephen a.k.a Sarutobi, was stabbed to death.
Reports gathered that Stephen was a House Officer at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital where he graduated from the University of Lagos on Tuesday, 2nd April, 2019.
Late Stephen was reportedly walking along Idi Araba Road, Lagos, when he was accosted by the robbers who stabbed him before carting away his properties found on him.
Former SUG President of UNILAG, Adeyeye Olorunfemi recounted how the tragic incident happened barely 24 hours after his friend graduated.
“He was stabbed by armed robbers and died of stab wounds right in front of a government teaching hospital- LUTH.
Stab wounds,” Olorunfemi posted on his Facebook Wall.
“We lost this young Doctor who wants to save lives to insecurity. He died 24 hours after his graduation. After 8 years of struggle in the jungle called Nigeria.
“The medical students said they have always complained about the frequent robbery attacks around and on the College of Medicine, Idi-Araba Campus but the Management keep turning deaf ears.
“You know ‘noisemakers’ like us like to protest the failings of government. You know we just like to make noise about their irresponsibility. But you don’t want to protest because you don’t want to die.
“Events have shown us that you don’t have to partake in any protest before you die in Nigeria. Just be a Nigerian!
We are all in this together.
“Not to offend anyone’s belief or religious sensitivity, don’t wish that this soul rest in peace. Do you think this troubled soul from Nigeria can rest?”
