Thursday, 4th of April 2019, was a gloomy day for the family, friends and community of Dr. Stephen Urueye.
The newly graduated medical doctor had been on his housemanship at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) Idi-Araba, Mushin, Lagos.
Stephen was robbed and stabbed around the entrance to the medical institution and therein died on Thursday, 4th of April.
Angered by the brutality of his death, the invaluable time he had dedicated and the lack of adequate security in the area of the attack, Stephen’s colleagues, friends and empathetic members of the community embarked on a #JusticeForStephen walk on Friday, 6th of April 2019 to create awareness and stir public attention.
The loss of the dedicated and highly promising young man continues to shake the community, both online and physical.
We can only hope that the perpetrators of this deed face the true intensity of their crime.
RIP DR. STEPHEN URUEYE
