A suspected gay, Razak Adetunji Adeniyi, popularly known as ‘Alhaji Gay’, has died of several gunshot wounds he sustained during a riot in Alagbado area of Lagos State.

The victim(his remains pictured) who was a controversial figure in the neighbourhood of Agbado/Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area was recently arrested by the Lagos State Police Command following a petition by the Alagbado community to the police commissioner, accusing him of being gay and a violent land grabber.

However, Alhaji Gay who was killed on Monday in a reprisal attack after his boys allegedly shot dead a landlord’s son at Temidire Street was also a police informant, snitching on internet fraudsters popularly known as Yahoo Boys.

His death that has become a trending topic on social media was said to be a cause for celebration among several Yahoo Boys in the area.
