Tragic Loss: DJ Bashiru Bello killed during robbery at Volcano Nightclub Abuja

A popular disc jockey, Bashiru Bello, known by his stage name, DJ Bash, was tragically killed in a robbery incident at Volcano nightclub in Gwarimpa, Abuja. The incident occurred early Saturday morning during a gig that began on Friday night.

The robbery turned deadly when armed assailants stormed the nightclub and shot DJ Bash inside the premises.

The Federal Capital Territory Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, confirmed the incident, stating that the police were not alerted in time to intervene effectively.

“We were not alerted on time about the situation,” SP Adeh said.

“However, an investigation has commenced, and we are on top of the situation.”

In light of the incident, SP Adeh urged residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities immediately.

“When you notice suspicious activity, call the police immediately, and we will respond swiftly,” she advised.

This tragic event has highlighted ongoing security concerns in Abuja.

Just a few days prior, a joint operation by police and military forces successfully repelled an attack on a bank in the Abaji area of the Nigerian capital. The attack, which took place on June 13, involved 15 armed men attempting to rob the First Bank PLC and simultaneously assault the Abaji Divisional Police Headquarters using dynamites.

According to a statement issued by SP Adeh on Friday, the swift response from the police and military resulted in the apprehension of three suspects, while others fled with injuries.

“In a swift response to an armed robbery incident at First Bank PLC in Abaji, the FCT police, led by Commissioner of Police CP Benneth C. Igweh, in a combined operation with the military, mobilized to the scene and repelled the attack,” the statement read.

The tragic death of DJ Bash has left the community in mourning and underscores the need for enhanced security measures across the capital.

Residents and authorities alike are calling for increased vigilance and rapid response to prevent such incidents in the future.
