37year old Jooda Akanbi attacked Jamani with a baseball bat on October 10th in broad daylight on Main Street in the north Dublin town at about 12.20pm after an argument broke out between them.

Mr, Jamani, a human resource specialist who owns Data Link Company in Dublin, suffered serious damage to his back and neck after his own friend attacked him. An eye witness told police that the two men first began shouting at each other, then they were pushing and shoving…

“I think one was waiting for the other because the boot of his car was open and there were two bats in it even before the fight began. Then the man with the bat held it high over his head and brought it down hard on the other man’s head and he just slumped to the ground. It was shocking. It’s not something you expect to see,”the eye witness said.

Jamani was rushed to the hospital where he finally succumbed to his injuries. He died in Beaumont Hospital in Dublin yesterday. Mr. Akanbi has been arrested for murder and is currently awaiting trial.
