According to report and social media posts by his close friends and relatives, he was shot by armed robbers on Thursday night and was not attended to when a good Nigerian rushed him to the hospital.
Ehins McWhales Adewale, identified as a friend to Ebenezer Ayeni in his social media post, recounted how the young gospel singer was not attended to at the hospital because a police report was not provided.
“We rushed him University College Hospital(UCH), Ibadan, Oyo State and the medical personnel demanded a police report before he could be attended to after we explained that he was shot by armed robbers. Then we rushed him to a private hospital —J-Rapha Hospital and they also refused to treat him without a police report.“
Unfortunately, after battling for his life for about three hours, he gave up the ghost due to the injuries sustained from the gun wounds.
Adewale, however, added that the victim’s wedding ceremony was billed to hold next week, but the sad development has thrown the whole family into mourning.
