Hector Oluwaseun Jobarteh

Other deaths only speak but murder shrieks out. Yet each man kills the thing he loves. Some do it with a bitter look, some with a flattering word. The coward does it with a kiss, the brave man with a sword; Hector Oluwaseun Jobarteh, winner of the 2006 Guilder Ultimate Search, GUS, reality TV, Season 3, murderers did it with a blazing gun. Few days after he was killed by unknown gunmen in Lagos, his family and friends are still mourning and agonising over the cause of his murder.

They are at a loss about who could have been responsible for the gruesome act and why? Hence the matter remains a Gordian knot as no one can categorically trace his death to a specific person. But that Hector met his end in a gruesome manner that ill-fated Sunday morning is not in doubt. They stormed his house and pumped Hector’s body full of hot lead (bullets). He couldn’t get to a nearby hospital before he died. In the wake of his demise, not a few friends and family allege that there is more to his death than meets the eye.

Rumour is rife about how he got involved in some business deals with some unknown guys and how he came into quite substantial sum of money.
