Nigerian boxer Isaiah Olugbemi has met his untimely demise after being shot multiple times by his neighbor, Nicholas Francis Xavier Giroux, 36, in the United States.

The tragic incident occurred on Monday night in the area of Meadowmist Way and Stehlik Drive in Odenton.

Olugbemi, a promising talent in the boxing world, was rushed to Baltimore after being found shot multiple times. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries, leaving his family, friends, and fans in mourning.

As the investigation unfolded, detectives obtained video surveillance footage that revealed a chilling sequence of events.

The footage showed Giroux walking directly to Olugbemi with a handgun, shooting him multiple times, and fleeing the scene on foot.

Court documents revealed that Giroux confessed to the shooting on June 18.

Abraham Olugbemi, the victim’s brother, revealed that Giroux had threatened Isaiah at least twice before, once in January and again in June, brandishing a gun on both occasions.

This disturbing history raises questions about the events leading up to the fatal shooting.

According to the police, Giroux fired a staggering six to 14 shots at Olugbemi, paused, and then fired at least three more times. The brutality of the attack has left many reeling.

Diaspora Digital Media understands that Giroux has been charged with first-and-second-degree murder in connection with Olugbemi’s death.

An Anne Arundel County judge has decided to hold him without bond, pending the commencement of the hearing on July 17.
