Nigerian student arrested, charged with murder in Texas

Texas Tech student Sampson Blake Oguntope, 21, is being charged with murder in regard to a fatal Slaton shooting which left an 89 year old woman dead and a 21 year old female injured.

Oguntope, who is a native of Houston is currently in police custody at the Lubbock County Detention Center and his bail was raised to at least $5 million — formerly $500,000.

According to this report, yes his actions may have looked suspicious but I am not really sure he did what he's been accused of doing. I am not talking based on the fact that he's a fellow Nigerian, I am talking based on the evidence provided thus far.

Vera, abeg this guy is not Nigerian!! He doesn't have a Nigerian passport. Is it his name that makes him Nigerian? Is Olu Dara (father of US rapper, Nasir Jones) a Nigerian? This is a question of what's in a name.
