The hashtag #RIPTonyZitta has been trending for a few days on Twitter and many wondered what led to its creation, like it suggests, it has to do with a young Nigerian man named Tony Zitta who died in an accident recently.
According to @thecapitalmvmt on Twitter, Tony was a young show promoter who worked in Abuja. On a particular night, he was driving home when he had an accident and some unidentified policemen were amongst the first people to reach him.
Instead of helping him get to a hospital for proper care, the policemen allegedly robbed him of money they found in his car and the intervention of other bystanders prevented them from making away with his camera.
Also the policemen allegedly attempted to help the person who hit Tony escape. The twitter account also narrated how he was taken to Garki and Wuse hospitals but he still passed on days after his accident. Read the tweets below:
