A young Nigerian IT prodigy, David Ntekim Rex was shot by robbers in Lagos on Friday .

David, 23, was attacked in Jibowu, Lagos State, around 8 p.m, as he was returning home.

According to gathered reports, David Ntekim Rex is the second son of his parents, after his attack the police were alerted but they allegedly watched as he bled to death while profiling him.



Even after he was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, doctors refused to take any action until they later pronounced him dead on arrival.

A Cousin to the deceased, Roy Mustang broke the news to Twitter on Sunday.

My ‘auntie’ has three sons. She’s always crazy about them. The middle child, David, is the most promising. He’s a tech guy; very young, very brilliant. David was on his was home on Friday night when he was robbed, shot and killed around Jibowu. Please say a prayer for my aunt.

David got shot around 8 p.m. The police were called, David hadn’t died yet. The Nigerian police stood and watched as he gasped for air. They took pictures instead, and were more concerned with why he – a tech guy- was carrying a laptop. Nigeria failed you, David.

The police then took david and his family to Sabo, where they looked for the laptop that he had on him instead of giving them a police report. The police officers were drunk and kept being unreasonable. He was finally released to his family, and they got to LUTH around 12:30am.

David wasn’t attended to by the doctors at LUTH. He was there till the family was convinced he couldn’t be alive because he had no pulse. The doctors refused to administer any test to see if he was alive.

This is someone that was in the process of interning with Microsoft. He even had an interview with the south Africa office. I’m broken.

I just left Mrs. Ntekim-Rex. I don’t think it has fully hit her what just happened. She’s still in shock.





David in 2018 as a computer engineering student at the University of Lagos emerged second in the annual “Master the Mainframe” competition, organized by AngelHack, a global hackathon company and the IBM Z Academic Initiative, aged 19 then.

The first position in the Middle East and African region went to 21 year old Salisu Ali of Bayero University in Kano.

The two Nigerians were also among the top 12 finalists globally.

Both students’ entries, according to the judges, showcased innovation and their clear understanding of software security and utility principles, two key attributes of mainframe systems.

The other 10 finalists were from Brazil, Germany, India, Japan, Nepal and the USA.
