Nov 11, 2016 – Stubborn Man Accidentally Killed By Vigilante Group In Oke Aro Ogun State While Threatening To Kill Mother 

Mr Quadri Adesina, a vigilante group commander in the Oke Aro area of Ogun State has been arrested by the police after an alleged accidental discharge from his gun killed a 23-year-old man, Yusuf Azeez.

Azeez reportedly wanted to wrest the gun from the suspect when a bullet hit him in the thigh. He was rushed to a hospital in the area, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

We learnt that the deceased’s mother, 42-year-old Toyin Akintayo, had invited Adesina and his colleagues to her residence on CAC Street, Oke Aro, around 8pm on Tuesday to apprehend Azeez, who allegedly threatened to kill her.

It was gathered that Azeez had arrived at home on that day at about 6pm and requested his dinner. The mother was said to have explained to him that she didn’t have enough money to prepare a meal.

Trouble started after the mother, who sells confectionery, gave him N200 to buy food, saying that was all she could afford. He reportedly smashed a bottle on the ground and vowed to kill her.

The mother said,

“I wanted to break my fast on that day with garri when he arrived at home. I said there was no kerosene in the stove to prepare food for him and his younger brother. I gave him N200 and the brother N70. He said the N200 was small and threw it at me.

“I explained to him that it was all I had and that we wouldn’t have been in the situation if he did not steal the compressor of my freezer, which I used to sell ice blocks. I also advised him to find a job. He became angry and started threatening me with a knife and the shard of a bottle. He said he would not allow me to sleep at home that night and vowed to kill me.

“I sneaked out to call members of a vigilance group beside our house. They followed me home and tried to pacify him. He fought them and fought for the control of a gun that one of them carried. The gun exploded in the process and he was injured in the thigh. He died at a hospital near here.”

Akintayo described her son’s death as a relief to her, saying she could no longer endure the shame his notoriety for “stealing and street fighting” had brought to the family.

She added that his son’s gang members stormed her house on Wednesday and threatened that she would pay for Azeez’s death.

She said, “I enrolled him in three different secondary schools, he dropped out. I took him to five different furniture experts to learn the work, he absconded. He went into barbing; I gave him N85,000 to rent a shop and furnished it for him. He didn’t go to the shop until the rent expired.

“His death is a relief to me and the family. He was too troublesome. There was a time he beat up an Oodua Peoples Cogress member while we were living in Idimu (Lagos). I spent a lot of money on the man’s treatment.

“A few weeks ago, he fought in Agege. He was seriously injured. He had been arrested many times by the police for several offences.”

The suspect, 48-year-old Adesina, who is in detention at the Agbado Police Division, said Azeez had beaten the two security guards that accompanied him to the scene, adding that he only wanted to prevail on him from causing further havoc when his gun exploded.

He said, “There was no light when we entered the building. He attacked us and two of my boys fled. I told him that I came to make peace. He said he didn’t fear my gun. He descended on me and wanted to snatch it. We were dragging it with each other when it exploded. I didn’t kill him. He would have killed me and his mother if he had access to the gun.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Police Command, ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.

He said, “The Divisional Police Officer of the station, CSP Abioye Shittu, led operatives to the scene and the suspect has been arrested. The case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Eleweran, Abeokuta.”

    IT LOOKS to me that this very boy was “destined” to die by a gun that day, or how else do I explain that a bullet hit him on the thigh, far from the vital organs, yet he couldn’t survive it?

    WHEN A MOTHER SPEAKS like this regarding her son, know that that son is(was) truly incorrigible. I tend to wonder what is sadder in this story: the very loss of a son, or the unnatural relief of the mother despite losing her son. Blood is thicker than water: somewhere within her she must feel that something has been rent apart from her. But when this pain is flushed away by the relief that she would no more be persistently burdened and sorrowed by the dreadful whims and caprices of a useless trouble maker and the wrongly channeled exuberances of an ungrateful son, I think that this is even more pitiable. Youths should endeavour not to constitute the agonies of their parents, for he is cursed whose death relieves, rather than sorrows his mother or father.

    AS FOR THE UNLUCKY KILLER, I HOPE this case is concluded asap, that he may regain his freedom.

    For the mother of the boy to feel relieved about his death, then its good radiance to bad rubbish. He chose a bad way to die. If he’s opportuined to come to this life again, he will tread gently, behave well and respect his elders. A well deserved death.

    The very day that this child was born , the parents . relative and friends were celebrating , not knowing very well as years adds on him and grow by age , that he gonna be a threat to his parents and public at large . That is why some times to have children is good of benefits and bad sides of it as well . Above all parents should not relax and fold up their hands.children needs trianing , encouragement , prayer ,financial support and conducive environment to grow with . So that when they grow of age they will be of better child at least , if they don,t , then no one to be blame . Though her mother did her very best to let him be of better child , but did,nt work out …

    May God save parents from bad children a beg! This mother obviously was living in terror of the deceased………in something akin to being sentenced to twenty three years imprisonment with hard labour ! Hard to know what to say but the description of the incident appears to be a self defense matter or an accident.

    Unfortunate indeed !!!

    When a person dies and it is celebratet instead of being mourned, it simply means such a fellow is not part of the family, he was a black shhep of the family.

    I take a stroll…

    In fact this is a good testimony to the parents but I wonder why this commander should be detained when the mother has confirm her appreciation and happiness over Her son’s death and even more happier than ever, in fact God will saver us in this world from the hand of the partial leaders….Mr. Commander never worry GOD is in control of everything ok
