Few weeks ago, we published the story of a young comedian that died. Now we have more information of how he was allegedly murdered over 250m Naira.
It was gathered that the comedian, Samuel Awal, with the stage name Big Shark or Alhaji Wuru wuru, whom ace comedian Ali Baba mourned last week, was murdered in his hotel room in Jalingo, on Dec. 8, 2016.
Earlier that fateful day, the comedian had been at the Jolly Nyame Stadium in Jalingo, Taraba state for a peace concert sponsored by the state government of which Samuel was one of the organisers.
A disagreement had ensued over the sharing of the N250 million Naira released by the state government for the event.
When he returned to his hotel room later he was killed by men who are yet to be identified.
At the moment, his family in Benue state have refused to receive his corpse until they are given a proper explanation as to what happened to their son.
