On Wednesday, April 3, Stephen had participated in the graduation ceremony of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) before falling a victim to armed robbers who stabbed him on Idi-Araba road.

Efforts to revive him at LUTH where he was rushed to were in vain as he later died.

One of the many protesters said they need the police force to intervene, saying doctors are saving lives and their lives also need to be saved.

He said: "We want the Police to do something about it, we are doctors, saving lives. It can be that our own lives are not safe."
