Sad Story! Nigerian Socialite Taiwo Jamani bashed with baseball bat to death by friend on the streets of Dublin

Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom. Psalm 90:12

As a Nigerian in Diaspora, our prayers above all is to teake the fruits of our labour back to our mother land. Yoruba adage will say 'ajo lawa ori mi sin mi dele'. Simply saying as a foreigner in a foreign land our days are limited as we are on a journey of self discovery and hopefully we will go back home with wealth, sound health and a big family of our own.

Contrary to this is called a 'a great tragedy'. Such is the story of this Nigerian socialite in Dublin, according to the Irish Independent Newspaper Taiwo Jamani who met a tragic end at the young age of 45 years not only did he meet with a tragic death but was bashed on the skull by his Nigerian friend and business partner on the high street, leading him into a coma and eventually death. The question we need to ask then is: what kind of business are they into that it has to end in violence, not that only but with an intent to kill. 

At the end two best of friends choose to take the dark road of destruction and death, one leads to death and the other life imprisonment. A lesson to us all to choose our friends wisely and always flee from appearances of Evil. I pray that as we came to this country seeking green pastures that the God of our fathers, Almighty God will order our steps and lead us always on the path of peace, righteousness and wealth IJN

We pray for the family of the deceased that the God of comfort, will comfort them and grant them peace
