He said, “Mohbad is my friend. I called him Oladimeji (meaning my second) because I’m the only son of my parents. We were really close.
“The last day we met which was last Saturday, I went there (Mohbad’s house) and we dined together. When I was leaving, he also gave me some money like he always did.
“I had a dream about him two days before the incident. In the dream, I saw someone trying to shoot me. I thought I escaped the bullet not knowing something like this would happen to me.”
On what led to his son’s death, Ayoba said, “According to what I heard from people, though I don’t believe was that an auxiliary nurse administered him an injection, and that could have led to anything.”
