O2 Academy Brixton, a concert venue in London, featured Nigerian hip-hop star Asaka on December 15th
As many as three thousand Black males and females showed up with no tickets or fake tickets. Many of them are believed to have been African immigrants. When they were not allowed in, they rioted and began storming the venue. They trampled security guards as well as each other. One cellphone video shows a group of Black males beating and kicking an unidentifiable victim who is on the ground. The victim stands out because he is wearing khaki pants that may be part of a work uniform.
Four people were hospitalized in critical condition.
Rebecca Ikumelo, 33, died of her injuries on December 17th. Ikumelo is a Nigerian surname.
Gaby Hutchinson, 23, died of his injuries on December 19th. He was working at the venue as a security guard when the mob seriously injured him.
The venue seats 5,000 people and was sold out that night. The show continued as scheduled.
