Nigerians took to twitter on Friday to condemn the killing of Stephen Urueye, a medical doctor, who was said to be working with the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

The victim was allegedly killed by armed thugs at Idi Araba area of Lagos State, a day after his convocation from the University of Lagos which held on Wednesday in Akoka, Lagos.

He was reported to have been attacked by suspected thugs on Thursday night and was rushed to LUTH where he later died.

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.

Today, sympathisers took to Twitter to pay tributes to him and demand justice for the victim with #JustForStephen.

They also condoled with his family while others shared their experience in the area where Stephen was attacked.
