How Lekki Free Trade Zone MD, Tajudeen Disu Was Shot Dead
The Managing Director of Lekki Worldwide Investment Company, Mr. Tajudeen Disu, who was in charge of the Lekki Free Trade Zone, was monday morning killed in Lagos during a community uprising.
Disu was the father of Jameel Disu who is married to Bella, the second daughter of business mogul and Chairman of Globacom, Mr. Mike Adenuga.
The Chief Security Officer (CSO) of Dangote Refinery, who was identified as Colonel Usman (rtd), was also severely injured in the fracas.
We gathered that the fracas began in the morning when members of the Okunraye community in the Lekki area of the state sighted some members of staff of the said refinery at the site.
According to an eyewitness, the members of the community stormed the site and asked them to vacate the vicinity, alleging that the said land was snatched from them.
During the confrontation, the deceased tried to calm frayed nerves when some hoodlums allegedly hijacked the otherwise peaceful protest and unleashed mayhem in the process.
According to another report, the deceased had called in the police to restore peace, but the policemen allegedly shot at the crowd and killed two people.
After regrouping, the community again angrily stormed the area and it was in the process that some persons killed Disu and severely injured the refinery’s CSO.
