The community is shocked and deeply saddened by this incident. The community people have suggested that Blaise’s older brother, who lives in the United States, had tried many times to bring him there. He wanted the young man to make a different life for himself. Moving to the United States would open many career options and opportunities for the victim.

But unfortunately, the efforts of the older brother were unsuccessful. The reports further suggest that Blaise’s brother even obtained a visa for Dubai. He was hoping that he would move his brother to Dubai for the meantime and bring him to the United States eventually. However, fate had a different plan for Blaise.

The incident took place on July 9, 2023. Blaise was caught stealing cables in Mile 90. The angry crowd, fueled by frustration and anger, took the law into their own hands and attacked Blaise with extreme violence, causing his death. Blaise, in a video that went viral on social media, was beaten with sticks and killed at the junction in mile 90.

As this heartbreaking story unfolds, our thoughts are with the family and friends of the young man who lost his life. We hope they can find comfort and support during this difficult time.
