Nigerian Boy, Timothy Oyebola Shot Dead In The US by Gossipninja: 5:15pm On Sep 22, 2018
A 16-year-old boy playing basketball at a Brooklyn park was fatally shot in the head Friday, authorities said.
Timothy Oyebola lived in Jamaica, Queens and attended Brooklyn Ascend HS.

He was likely not the intended target, police said.
He was in the Chester Playground in Brownsville at 4 p.m. when he was gunned down.
“As they were playing, shots were fired into the park. The shots were fired quite a distance away — over 100 feet,” said NYPD Deputy Chief Michael Kemper.

The high-achieving academic teen and his sister came to the US from Lagos in 2013.
“My son was a calm, quiet, obedient child, ” grieving dad David Oyebola told The Post.
“He’s intelligent. He loved sports and basketball. Very ambitious. He’s a boy who had a brighter future. He was constantly going for what he wanted to do in life. He wanted to become a doctor or an engineer.”

WTF!

Right place but at the wrong time!

RIP yunging.

I blame all our past leaders for this death. If they had developed our country from the proceeds of oil, Nigerians wouldn't be leaving our shores searching for greener pastures.

What a fvcked country!!

Only an irresponsible parent will claim he/she was looking for a better life for the kids and relocated them to a place like Jamaica Queens New York, or Peckham London.

Are there no saner districts in the USA to raise a model citizen and not a Nigga thug?

RIP to the homie that we lost.
