A concerned Nigerian has taken to his Twitter handle to alert his friends and social media users about the strange occurrence he has observed in his neighborhood in Akure after a Yahoo boy hosted a birthday party in his street in which about 50 persons attended.
According to him, he said those who attended the party are dropping dead mysteriously. To authenticate this claim, many social media users have come out to attest to the boy’s claim and said it is true.
This shocking revelation was made by a Twitter user, @pelumiawotedu. He took to the micro-blogging platform to explain the shocking incident that has occurred in Alagbole Akute, Lagos.
More than 30 Persons have died already after attending a Yahoo boy Birthday party
The part of the story reads;
“In the story making rounds, a yahoo boy celebrated his birthday party in a grand style last Sunday with over 50 of his friends in attendance. Unfortunately, it’s been alleged that 50 of those friends in attendance are dying mysteriously”.
Immediately the Twitter user made the revelation, some Twitter users living within the same area left a comment about the incident that occurred on the fateful Sunday. Their comments confirmed the claim.
A Twitter user @ysquare_r also claimed that his neighbor lost her friend, her child, and son to the strange incident. Not only that, also claimed that another man in his street who attended the birthday party with four of his friends; 5 of them are all dead.
Continuing, he revealed that as at the time of counting and making the revelation, they were 30 dead already. That is, 30 out of those who attended the “Yahoo Boy” birthday party are dead.
Meanwhile, people have rumored that the dead victims were used for ritual purposes. But so many people have kicked against it. Judging from the reactions of the public, it shows that something else is responsible for the mysterious deaths of those who attended the party.
They pinned their death to food poisoning. They could be right anyway. This because even the yahoo boy who organized the birthday party also died.
Here are what people are saying about this incident:
More details have emerged over this Birthday party massive death saga.
- The birthday took place in a bar.
- The Yahoo boy brought a cooler of fried meat from his car boot and offered it to the victims.
- The Yahoo boy did not die as alleged. He ran away.
- Each of the victims vomited blood before dying.
- a little boy who was given the meat also vomited and died
- A viral post on Twitter claimed that no less than 50 people were reported dead after attending a birthday party hosted by a suspected Yahoo boy, a Nigerian gland for an internet fraudster.
According to the report, the incident happened last week and since then there have been numerous reports of young people dying in the area.
“A Yahoo boy did birthday party this last Sunday, and over 50 friends of his who attended the party are dead already. The toll still counting… This happened around Alagbole Akute. May God help us,” @pelumiawotedu tweeted on the 18th of March.
The tweets have been retweeted more than 200 times and several other Twitter users have waded in the discussion, corroborating his claims.
The tweet started getting attention again on Sunday after a screenshot of it was shared by a social media post aggregator @Postsubman published it on its Twitter handle.
Some fraudsters are known to be fetish, hence the rumour of the alleged mass death gained traction with many people who believed they could have been killed through diabolic means.
Several stories circulating on social media had it that the deceased persons ate noodles at a birthday party on Saturday, March 20, got home and at midnight, started vomiting blood before they gave up the ghost.
Some persons have also alleged that the food served was pepper soup which might have likely been poisoned.
However, a source told SaharaReporters that her apprentice, who was at the bar on the date of the incident said the so-called internet fraudster drove into the bar on a Thursday and ordered drinks for everyone, which he repeated the following day – Friday.
On Saturday, 20th of March, the alleged fraudster-cum-ritualist drove into the bar and also paid for bottles of beer while he announced it was his birthday.
She said the ‘Yahoo boy’ then went to his car where he got a cooler of fried meat and asked everyone to have a bite while sipping their drinks.
“It was at this point that my apprentice noticed his phone was missing. He wanted to capture the scene, make a video or take pictures and post but he couldn’t find his phone so he was more interested in getting the phone than the meat they were sharing. The bar attendants already gave him a bottle of beer paid for by the Yahoo boy and he drank from it before he left to look for his phone. Nothing happened to him, I think whatever caused the death should be the meat because he brought it out from the booth of his car, no one knows where he got it from.”
According to her, 25 people from the incident are now confirmed dead as against the figure given on social media – 50.
She said, “The story is very true. I think it is a ritual, not food poisoning. The Yahoo boy has been coming to the bar; that place is a place where they smoke, drink, anyone can declare that he will foot others’ bills so it was not new when the guy came the first day to say he would pay for all the drinks. Guys there were happy; the second day, the same thing and the third day, he said it was his birthday that he brought some fried meat in his car so he started distributing to them, telling them to use it to step down (take it along with) the chilled beer he bought for them. They were so happy and started eating.
“From what I heard, at midnight, they would wake up and say, we ate last at City Concept, start vomiting blood and die. Like 25 of them are dead now. 10 at Keredolu, another 10 at Jolasco close to Lambe, and another 5 at Alagbole. I can’t tell if the figure is up to 50 because some people who were not accustomed to going to the bar might have been there on that day to take a piece and return to their houses. None of them died at the bar, no one lodged in there, it is not a hotel.
“The Yahoo boy did not die; he simply ran away. He has been declared wanted. His car is even parked at Ajuwon there, some people wanted to burn his car but they were advised against doing such so that the culprit would be traced.
“The police are aware of the incident, they even wanted to go and lock up the hotel but when the owner heard of it, she called them and asked why because she did not produce the beer in her hotel and moreover, the beer was opened for each person at their own request. It was not like it was opened behind them and that was not the first nor second time they had come to the bar to drink.”
Another source told SaharaReporters that a 19-year-old boy who was at the scene of the incident also vomited blood before he died.
She said the boy, who was the son of her mother’s friend, has now been buried.
“He was at the bar; he ate and drank beer too. He vomited blood and died; he has now been buried. His mother and my mother are friends.”
A Twitter user, @UdehEmm22446501, who claims he stays in the area where the incident occurred said, “Last week, the candlelight procession for one of the dead victims was done in my area…the supposed birthday was done in a hotel, I still believe the hotel is functioning now. Someone was contacted to cook the food as I heard the person is on the run.”
Another user, @Titi_Wunmi tweeted, “Happened around my area. Let’s just be careful of how we eat at parties and please stop taking food home from parties just because it is free. It is risky. Someone lost 3 kids from this. It is very sad. I am so sure more than 50 people died because some must have come from far away and must have died on getting home. Some said the celebrant left the country that same night, so it’s not (a case of) food poisoning.”
Share this and warn your loved ones to be careful how they accept free food.
