Peace maker beaten to death while trying to settle dispute between two men


A peace maker identified as Yinka Adewoyin, was
reportedly beaten to death, while trying to make peace between two warring parties.


The Nation reports that the incident happened on Thursday, when 31-year-old Adewoyin was on his way back from a beer joint with his friends. It was gathered that he tried making peace between Kazeem aka Down gear, Mopo and an elderly mechanic Mukaila Lasisi, they were assaulting.


Kazeem reportedly approached Lasisi who was working on a truck parked along the road, to get it off the road, a request Lasisi turned down on the grounds that he was not the owner of the vehicle. Lasisi’s response got Kazeem angry, who pounced on him to beat him up. It was at this point that Adewoyin, who was passing by intervened and pleaded with Kazeem and his friend, Mopo to leave Lasisi alone.


The duo however queried Adewoyin’s audacity to intervene and beat him mercilessly till he fell down, hit his head on the ground and passed into a coma.
His assailants fled after the incident, as Adewoyin was taken to a nearby private hospital by bystanders. He was said to have died at the hospital three days after he was admitted.


The deceased was described by one of his former trainees, Tosin, as humble and respectful. He said: “Throughout my stay with him as apprentice, he did not fight with anyone. I was therefore shocked when I was told on the telephone that he was killed during a scuffle.”
