Late Abraham Badru’s Mother Speaks About Her Son’s Death
The mother of Abraham Badru, who was shot dead in London in March 2018 has spoken about circumstances surrounding the untimely death of her son.
Ronke Alli, the wife of Lagos House of Representatives member, Dolapo Badru, revealed that her son’s life had been threatened since he stopped a rape attempt and also revealed the culprits at the age of 14.
She told the Police that since her son did that brave act in the year 2009, his life has always been under serious threat.
Abraham Badru received a bravery award from the Metropolitan Police for stopping a rape attempt on a girl by a gang.
According to the Mother of the deceased, her son’s life was seriously threatened when he met one of those convicted because of the rape case at a club who has now been released from prison.
She also said his windscreen was smashed and the tyre of his car removed as he was being threatened by the attackers.
Speaking about her reaction to her son’s death, Ronke Alli said: “I started shouting ‘my only child, my life is empty’. I started rolling on the floor. I was like ‘who would choose to do this to Abraham? Who has he offended to that extent to take his life away? He was a very peaceful man, he wasn’t violent at all. A very respectful boy and a loving child. He loved everybody and was always at peace with everyone.”
As the investigation is still ongoing into the death of Abraham Badru, the Police have announced a reward of $ 20,000 for anyone with information about his death.
