A sound engineer has been set ablaze allegedly by a group of commercial motorcyclists in Lagos
The young man, simply identified as David, was lynched and burnt to death.

David, a sound engineer, was on his way home from a club when the incident occurred at Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
A video of the incident posted on Twitter shows David lying on the floor with a tire burning on his body. His attackers then pour fuel on the fire, causing it to increase.
