Family Demands Justice For Osun Youth Chased To Death

Family Demands Justice For Osun Youth Chased To Death (Updated: 2 years ago)


The family of Idris Ajibola, a mobile phone repairer, who died on Tuesday in a road crash after being chased by a vehicle belonging to Joint Task Force of the Osun State Government, has demanded the immediate prosecution of those who caused the accident.

The remains of Idris, who would have turned 21 on October 10, were interred in Ofatedo on Wednesday.

The deceased’s sister, Rukayat, who spoke to our correspondent during a visit to her residence in Ofatedo, said Idris just returned from Lagos when the incident happened.

She urged Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to ensure that the matter was not swept under the carpet, insisting that Idris committed no crime to warrant the chase of the vehicle conveying him and the crash that claimed his life.

According to her, Idris had joined his friends on a trip to Osogbo to buy bread shortly before his death.

The other occupants of the car, Raheem Abdullahi, Salam Adekunle and one other simply identified as Dayo, sustained injuries.

Meanwhile, youths in Ofatedo protesting the death of Idris barricaded the Ofatedo/Ido Osun Road on Wednesday.

As of 5.30pm when our correspondent left the scene, the youth set up bonfires on the road and prevented vehicles from passing to Ede through Ofatedo and resisted attempts by the police to clear the road.

The police fired teargas canisters at the protesters, who hurled stones at the cops.

Meanwhile, Oyetola has called on the leadership of the Nigeria Police Force to immediately launch an extensive investigation into the circumstances and events that led to the death of a citizen allegedly in the hands of operatives of the JTF in Osogbo.
