Nigerian Mum Cries Out For Justice Following The Brutal Killing Of Her Only Child In L.A

A Nigerian woman, Kari Jolaoso pictured above with her 21-year-old son, Jamal Oladapo who was stabbed to death in Northridge, Los Angeles, California, has cried out to the public to help find the killers of her son and bring them to book.

One of her relative claims the police is not doing anything about it.


The Birmingham High School graduate and student at L.A. Film School, where he was studying to become a producer and also helped his mother with their family business, was living with his mum in LA.

Unfortunately, a week ago, his body was found after being stabbed to death in an underground parking garage of the Merridy Village apartment building, reports.


According to reports from neighbors, they said they heard an argument between three men around 1:30 pm. His Mother said she called him several times to find out where he was but he didn’t pick his call.

“I called him numerous times. He did not answer,” his mother said.

The next day, she said she found at her door: his clothes, headphones, cellphone, house keys and wallet wrapped in his jacket.

After his body was taken for autopsy, the coroner confirmed that Oladapo died from stab wounds to the chest.


The heartbroken mum has now made a public plea, appealing to anyone who can shed light on who stabbed him to death, to reveal details to the police.

“I beg whoever is out there to please, if you see anything, if you know anything, please let the police know. Please don’t let another mother go through this,” she said.
