A Nigerian national with an emerging career developing at Dublins Shelbourne FC, Toyosi was involved with a standoff with natives and ten or so Nigerian youths, in which they were called n*gg**s and told to go home to their own lands.
An attack of women and men on the youths resulted in the youths fleeing, only for two of them, the victim and his friend being chased in a car, cornered and attacked.
Defending his freind, Toyosi was murdered by a knife to the heart.
