"What did they expect to get from a cyclist? He was stabbed in the neck. He was a tough guy. He had the wherewithal to cycle back to Gbagada general whilst putting pressure on the bleeding vein. Attempts to stop the bleeding was unsuccessful. His wife (a doctor) and others attended to him.
"They both joked that I had retired to ilisan because I stopped cycling 4 months ago. The jugular vein had been breached. He was transferred to Luth or Lasuth for surgery. He never came out of coma. He gave up the ghost today.
"Rip Mabogs aka Afolabi Mabogunje. This Naija no safe anytime of the day.”
