Beer Barn, the leisure facility in the Lekki area of Lagos state, has suspended operations in honour of David Imoh, the sound engineer killed by irate commercial motorcyclists.


The pub broke the news in a statement sent to TheCable Lifestyle on Wednesday.

On May 12, Imoh was set ablaze by a mob near the facility where he was billed to work alongside a live band.

According to the statement, the pub said it suspended its operations because it “shares in the grief of Imoh’s family and friends.”


The leisure facility also reiterated its support for an ongoing investigation into the matter by law enforcement agencies.

Beer Barn had earlier recounted events that led to the sound engineer’s death as well as efforts it took to prevent the incident.

The facility had said Imoh was killed by the motorcyclists after they accused him of using charm on one of their members.


“While we were engaging the mob, David, who was alleged to have used the charm, came out of our facility and was forcibly taken away from our premises by the mob, which insisted he was a Yahoo boy (internet fraudster) trying to use the victim for a money ritual,” it had said.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos governor, had also condemned Imoh’s death and vowed to ensure justice is served.
