Nigerians have been mourning David Ntekim Rex, a Nigerian IT prodigy, who was been fatally shot by robbers in Lagos.

It was learnt that the 22 year-old was attacked in Jibowu around 8pm on Friday, as he was returning home.

Police were said to have been alerted after the attack, but they held onto his body and watched as David bled to death.

Even after he was rushed to the hospital, doctors refused to take any action until he was later pronounced him dead at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

In 2018, David beat 17,000 contestants from around the world, including finalists from Brazil, Germany, India, Japan, Nepal, and the United States to emerge as the co-regional winner of the annual Master the Mainframe competition, organized by AngelHack and IBM Z Academic Initiative.

Tributes have begun pouring in for the late tech guru from Nigerians who are saddened by his demise.
