It is a sad day for the family of a House Officer at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Dr. Urueye Stephen aka Sarutobi, as it has been reported that Sarutobi, who just graduated from the University of Lagos on Tuesday, April 2nd, is dead.
According to reports, the young doctor was stabbed to death by armed robbers while walking along Idi Araba road. His items were stolen before the robbers ran away.
Adeyeye Olorunfemi, the deceased’s friend took to Facebook to mourn him writing;
”And we lost Stephen.
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.
He was stabbed by armed robbers and died of stab wounds right in front of a government teaching hospital- LUTH.
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. 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.
My heart is heavy!
This is sad!
