Confirming the death of the concertgoer on his Instagram on Saturday, Asake said, “I am devastated by the news that Rebecca Ikumelo, who was in a critical condition since Thursday, has sadly passed away."
”My sincerest condolences go to her family and loved ones. Please, let’s keep her family in our prayers. I have spoken to them and will continue to do so. I am overwhelmed with grief and could never have imagined anything like this happening.
”My team and I are still awaiting the full debrief back from the venue management and the police to determine exactly what led to all the disruption and ultimately to Rebecca’s passing.
