Hundreds of people ignored the Covid19 public health regulations yesterday as they gathered enmasse on basketball court at John John in Laventille to bid farewell to reputed gang leader Anthon “Boombie” Boney.
He was gunned down last Wednesday along the Uriah Butler Highway near the Caroni Bird Sanctuary.
Many men including those without face masks, exchanged brotherly hugs with each other. The funeral passed uneventfully and was over quite quickly without any formal addresses equivalent to a eulogy.
New National Vision (NNV) party leader Fuad Abu Bakr told reporters at John John that the cycle of violence plaguing urban communities is tragic.
