Why Nigerian Boxer Was Killed By US Neighbour

The reason behind the murder of Isaih Olugbemi, a Nigerian-born boxer, who was shot dead numerous times in Odenton, Maryland, USA has been revealed.

Olugbemi’s demise is connected with a confrontation he had with a white man named Nicholas Giroux.

Giroux, the victim’s neighbour, was recognized as the suspect in a video the police got from surveillance footage.

In the clip, the suspect is seen confronting Olugbemi with a firearm before shooting him numerous times and fleeing the scene on foot.

Abraham Olugbemi, the victim’s brother, claimed that Giroux had threatened the dead with a pistol at least twice this year, in January and June and according to the Police, Giroux confessed to the shooting on June 18.

It was also revealed that Giroux fired six to 14 shots at Olugbemi, paused and then fired at least three more times at the crime scene.

The commencement of the hearing in the case of Nicholas Francis Xavier Giroux, 36, who shot Odugbemi dead is set for July 17. He is charged with first-and-second-degree murder of the Nigerian boxer.

Before his death, Odugbemi was a neighbour to the accused and was an up-and-coming boxer. He was found shot multiple times Monday night in the area of Meadowmist Way and Stehlik Drive in Odenton.

Despite being rushed to Baltimore, he didn’t survive the incident.

Olugbemi won a gold medal in the Junior Olympics, was a three-time Golden Gloves state boxing champion, and won the Open Regional tournament twice.
