Taking to Facebook to mourn his death, his friend and former UNILAG SUG president, Adeyeye Olorunfemi, wrote;
“And we lost Stephen.
We lost this young Doctor who wants to save lives to insecurity.
He died 24 hours after his graduation. After 8 years of struggle in the jungle called Nigeria.
He was stabbed by armed robbers and died of stab wounds right in front of a government teaching hospital- LUTH.
The medical students said they have always complained about the frequent robbery attacks around and on the College of Medicine, Idi-Araba Campus but the Management keep turning deaf ears.
You know ‘noisemakers’ like us like to protest. But you don’t want to protest because you don’t want to die.
Events have shown us that you don’t have to partake in any protest before you die in Nigeria. Just be a Nigerian!
We are all in this together.
My heart is heavy!
This is sad!
