Gunmen Attack Lanre Teriba, Condition Unstable In Lagos Hospital

Published

on

Popular gospel act, Lanre Teriba aka Atorise is presently in an unstable condition following injuries he sustained during an attack in Lagos at the weekend, by men suspected to be herdsmen.

According to an eye witness account, the incident happened on Saturday night at the Berger end of the Lagos/ Ibadan expressway while the act was returning from an engagement.

The Pageonline gathered that a group of unknown gunmen attacked the musician while returning from a wedding ceremony where he entertained guests.

The attack victim who is currently receiving treatment in a Lagos hospital sustained serious injury in the head and neck.

Speaking with ThePage’s Tosin Faleye on his hospital bed, Atorise said that he is still alive is a miracle, informing that he was only revived to life after he was rushed to the hospital from the scene of the incident as he had earlier passed out as a result of the devastating effect of the deadly weapon unleashed on him by his attackers who actually left him lifeless until God took control.

Recall that the singer just released a song titled WHY THE KILLINGS, where he lamented the state of insecurity in the country.

In the song, Atorise campaigned against the unending cases of kidnapping and wanton killings especially by suspected Fulani herdsmen among other murderous gangs responsible for the various reported cases of killing in the country in the name of religion.

Embassy

The United States Mission to Nigeria has warned Nigerians against a fraudulent visa report being circulated on social media.

 

 

The fraudulent visa press release had claimed that the US was issuing a new type of work visa to Nigerians.

 

 

But the US Mission on Friday in a visa fraud alert urged Nigerians to disregard information stating that a new work visa has been created.

 

 

The statement read, “The U.S. Mission to Nigeria is drawing the general public’s attention to a fake “press release” claiming to offer a new type of work visa to Nigerians.

 

“Scammers and fraudsters circulate this phoney information that the new work visa applies to Nigerian citizens aged 40-55.

 

 

The U.S. Embassy in Abuja and Consulate in Lagos is warning Nigerians not to fall victims to the scam. It is the same old scam, but in fresh packaging – don’t become a victim!

 

 

“If you have questions about whether visa information is legitimate, please refer only to official sources: travel.state.gov, ng.usembassy.gov/visas, and www.ustraveldocs.com/ng.”
