The highly anticipated “Homecoming” concert of Pascal Odinaka, popularly known as Poco Lee, a renowned dancer and alumnus of Lagos State University (LASU), was marred by a disturbing incident on Thursday. Suspected cultists forcefully interrupted the event, which took place on the university campus, leaving several individuals injured.
Eyewitnesses revealed that the chaos erupted when a group of hoodlums infiltrated the venue in the midst of the concert. Their sudden intrusion sent shockwaves through the crowd, leading to panic and confusion. Disturbing images and videos circulated on social media, illustrating the aftermath of the attack and the extent of the injuries sustained by numerous attendees.
Among those harmed was Bella Shmurda, a well-known musician and also an alumnus of LASU. Reports indicated that he became a victim of the violence unleashed by the disruptive cultists. The incident left Poco Lee, the concert’s host, deeply dismayed, as evidenced by a video where he expressed his frustration.
In the heartfelt video, Poco Lee could be heard lamenting the situation, questioning the motives of the attackers and the consequences it would have on future events. He exclaimed, “What’s happening? How are the guest artists going to return next time? This doesn’t make any sense. I brought all the artists I promised, and they are all here. But these individuals, they don’t listen.”
The likes of Tochukwu Gbubemi Ojogwu also known as Odumodublvck were also on the run when the disruption took place.
The unfortunate disruption of the “Homecoming” concert has sparked concern about the security measures in place at public events. Authorities are expected to launch an investigation into the incident, with the aim of identifying the culprits and preventing such incidents from happening in the future.
Concert organizers, artists, and the general public are hopeful that this incident will serve as a catalyst for improved safety protocols and enhanced vigilance at gatherings, ensuring the well-being of all attendees.
