Samuel(pictured) was the goalkeeper of amateur side, Ifako United Football Club. The 21-year-old was a member of the victorious Dairy Farm Senior Secondary School, Agege, that won the Principal Cup in 2014.

It was said that he was set to travel to Europe when he was stabbed to death by the accused on January 15.

Narrating how the deceased was stabbed to death in cold blood, the prosecutor, Inspector Godwin Agoi told the court that Samuel was popular in Agege, and was passing through Oyemekun Bus stop, when the accused and others at large accosted him, and demanded money from him.
