A 22-year-old computer system Engineer, David Ntekim-Rex, was shot and killed by armed robbers in the Jibowu area of Lagos State on Friday.

Ntekim-Rex, who is described as a Tech Guru, made a name for himself after beating 17,000 others from around the world to win the IBM Z Academic Initiative Prize in 2018.

According to multiple reports, the late tech guru was attacked by armed robbers at the Jibowu area of Lagos State.

It is widely alleged that the police met Ntekim-Rex alive upon arrival at the scene but did not do enough to help him.

Some social media users claim the police suspected him to be an internet fraudster because he had a laptop with him when they arrived the scene of the unfortunate incident.

Others blamed Doctors on duty at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) for failing to take immediate action when he was brought to the hospital.
