Just early this week, a news spread around about the death of a rising Comedian Chinedu Paul (a.k.a. MC Think Twice), who was killed by a mob in Ikorodu claiming he is a member of the deadly gang Badoo.
As the family and friends are preparing to hold a memorial service for him, one of his friend with Instagram handle @lawaldolapo, took to her Instagram page to show her grevience about the incident and about the fact that nothing has been done to bring her friend justice.
Read what she said below;
Yea, maybe most of my followers aren’t comedians but I know a couple of you are OAPs, VJs, social media celebrities, activist, movie directors, person know person and even comedians.
I was not going to put up anything about him until I saw a video of his girlfriend, then I had goosebumps, I’m here thinking, and she loves him o, same way I love someone, God! I can’t imagine it yet all these boogie ass comedians, so called father of comedy, so called owners of comedy show of the year, biggest comedy show of the year, best comedy show of the year, ain’t saying nothing. What if it were you that was killed at that stage and age, would you be happy knowing the people you worship and idolize don’t give a f**k about you?
He didn’t die of car crash, he was brutalized to death! He was tortured by some group of people who think and are even made to believe that they are right, yet you guys say nothing?
All I see is I need a 100 repost for my show, all of them dindinrin, alainironu reposting like idiots. I pity you, one day you’ll need people to defend or avenge or stand up for you.
Another friend of late Chinedu Paul who also a fast rising Comedian MC Princewill also joined his voice with @lawaldolapo as he pleaded with the Nigeria’s comedy industry “leaders” and the state government of Lagos to bring justice for late Paul.
He had this to say;
JUSTICE FOR COMEDIAN THINK TWICE. .
Today we cry with one voice, today we shout out to Nigeria, a serious blow has been dealt on d comedy industry, on a family. A bread winner, a pillar, a humble man, a comedian has been murdered in cold blood, burnt with fire and all d police can do is warn residents in ikorodu to be careful.
@akinwunmiambode Sir would you allow this blood to be spilled in vain, would you allow this injustice to happen to a man who belongs to a body(Entertainment) that is regarded as d pride of Lagos,would you let d defenceless count those losses in tears… Plz do something.
