A medical doctor said to be working with the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Dr Stephen Urueye, has been reported killed by armed thugs at Idi Araba area of Lagos.

The victim was one of the graduates from the University of Lagos (UNILAG) who participated in the school’s convocation held on Wednesday in Akoka.

However, the Lagos State Police Command has yet to confirm the incident.

He was rushed to the emergency wing of LUTH on Thursday night after the attack.

He later died on Friday morning after efforts by doctors to keep him alive were unsuccessful.

Following the news of his death, some students of the university staged a peaceful protest at Idi Araba to condemn the killing.

The protesters took to the streets in the area, carrying placards with various inscriptions and calling for justice for the victim.

They alleged that Idi-Araba has been overtaken by armed thugs and called on relevant agencies to beef up security in the area.

One of the students explained that they were embarking on the demonstration to call the government’s attention to the dangers students of the institution face living in the area.
