Jan 10, 2013 – Man Killed By Ibadan Police Days To His Wedding At Mokola Station

About to wed Groom, Mr Olusola Adegbegha, 35, was shot dead by a corporal attached to the Mokola Police Station in Ibadan on Tuesday.

The deceased had fixed his wedding date for March and was awaiting the return of his fiancee from Canada for their introduction ceremony this month end.

There are two different accounts of the incident.

The Police on narrating the incident, told the deceased’s brother, Sunkanmi Owoeye, that Adegbegha had proven stubborn and un-cooperative when a corporal requested for a search at Recreation Club area where he was relaxing.

His stubbornness according to them, caused the corporal to take him to the station.

On arriving at the station, Adegbegha allegedly tried to escape with the vehicle, the moment the corporal alighted to open the gate to the station.

The action infuriated the corporal, who immediately reacted by shooting at the car. The bullet penetrated through the rear trafficator of the Mazda 626 car into the thigh of the deceased.

It was gathered that the victim had managed to drive himself to the Group Medical Hospital, where he gave up the ghost even before the hospital gate was opened.

Mr Owoeye disregarded the police’s account, stating that “the claim of the police that my brother was escaping while shot is questionable, because the bullet penetrated the rear of the car and it is quite evident that making a turn in the police station is difficult…we believe that there is more to this and we are asking for justice to prevail over the unjustified killing of our brother.”

Meanwhile, Deputy Police Commissioner of the state, Mr Clement Adoda, gave an entirely different introduction while giving his account of the incident.

In his account, a stop-and-search patrol team had stopped a green Mazda 626 with plate number PR 61 KJA driven by Adegbegha at about 5.00am.

However, the non-chalant and wild character exhibited by the deceased when enquired of his identity and car ownership, made the patrol team leader assign a corporal to accompany him to the station.

On getting to the station, the deceased tried to escape when the corporal alighted to open the gate. The corporal aimed at the tyre and was unaware that the bullet had hit the deceased since he was still able to escape.

The corporal has being detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Iyaganaku and the case is presently being investigated, the Deputy Commissioner of Police added.

  2. Nig Police are not trained on how to relate with the citizens.On this accout there is a lie on what the police are sayingAnd they are full with lies. R I P

  3. Officers in that mokola police station need to be checked. If one of them has not face death sentence they wouldn’t lean. My sister n brother were mercilessly beaten after a corporal hit her car, simply because the corporal is an officer. Ofcourse they regretted their life afterwards and this is one of the results. U are hereby sentenced to death by hanging. Oh YES cos its a murder and let it serve as a lesson to ur colleagues….no sacred cows , no immunity whatsoeva.

  4. The Nigerian police are real Boko Haram, God will punish them by wasting people’s life. When the person is dead, they will now cook some bullshit story and begin to tell rubbish. Anybody that is disturbing the peace of Nigeria will not know peace

  5. Poor soul,na different story police they tell now.Na gentle man then kill ooo,make u na no buy the police storry.The man no try to run away.

  6. This is injustice, how can unsound police be issued rifles without a proper training, Nigeria police should not be giving riffles to police touts so that inocent citizens will not be terminated as they killed my Sola Adegbeha.

  7. To me I believe the NPF needs a complete overhaul. From the IG to the least in the force are all corrupt and I don’t care what anybody says or think about that. It is time to have educated people in the force not those that don’t know the different between left and right, the only language they can speak is money. I feel sorry for the family of the deceased and my heart goes to them. I don’t think any thing will happen in term of justices, – justices in Nigeria fa fa fa foul. Another problem in Nigeria is that justices is miles away from our society, there is corruption in every corner of Nigeria, I won’t be surprise if the (servant of satan} officer who killed that innocent young man is back at work already. Let me say this to all those so call LEADERS in Nigeria that there is God and on the day of judgement they will stand before Almighty God to give account of there work.
    Olusola Adegbegha, I pray that the Lord will forgive you any sin you may have commited whilst on earth and may your gentle soul R.I.P. Sleep on
