At an Afrobeat performance in London last week, a 23-year-old security guard became the second person to pass away due to a stampede. According to the Metropolitan Police, Gaby Hutchinson, employed to guard Asake’s Thursday performance at Brixton’s O2 Academy, passed away Monday from wounds he received when a crowd pushed their way inside the venue.
Hutchinson was in the building’s foyer when a flood of concert-goers without tickets rushed in, according to the police. After the events on Thursday, “it is tragic news that a second person has lost their life,” said Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove. I want to send Gaby’s family my sincere condolences during this incredibly trying time.
Also in the foyer was Rebecca Ikumelo, who passed away on Saturday from injuries sustained in the mob crush. One of three people hospitalized in critical condition after the Asake event was the 33-year-old mother of two. The third person mentioned in the essential requirement was Hutchinson.
