The late Alhaji Mutiu Agbosasa, who spent 45 years of his life living in the United States of America was murdered in Ikorodu, Lagos State on Tuesday, December 2019 after he decided to return home.
Here is how veteran Journalist Azuka Jebose summarised the story.
RETURNED AND MURDERED
Forty-five years ago, Alhaji Mutiu Agbosasa left his hometown, in search of all things bright and beautiful – life, education, love, and living.
The United States of America was the nation that offered him opportunities for existence and sense of purpose. So he lived in Brooklyn, New York, for forty-five years.
He spent those years building his life and family, with hopes and prayers to someday, when his years of retirement arrived, return to his Ikorodu native soil as a retiree, enjoy his retirement, its benefits, and the remainder of his enchanting life.
A few years ago, Baba Agbosasa, as he was popularly known, built his dream retirement country-home in his Ikorodu hometown. After his retirement and an enriched 45 years of living in Brooklyn, he retired and returned to live in his Ikorodu comfort home.
Early Tuesday morning, armed robbers allegedly attacked the 72-year-old man and fatally shot him.
He lived and survived the most dangerous city in the world- New York City,- but returned home recently only to be murdered, before dawn, in his dear native land.
May Allah grant him eternal mercy.
