Breaking! Latestnews
A family in Ondo State has called on the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Gbenga Adeyanju, and the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to investigate the death of their son, Seun Ayoade, who died in the custody of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Ondo State Police Command. Seun and his brother Abayomi, together with some other suspects, were allegedly arrested and detained by the men of SARS on October 17,2017, at the Oke Aro area of Akure, the state capital, for alleged robbery. The policemen apparently did not inform the family that Seun was dead, until a human rights organisation was involved in the case. The stepfather of the deceased, Mr. Femi Ajilo, addressed the media Seun and his brother did not belong to a robbery gang and that after their arrest, he (Ajilo) went to the SARS’ office in Akure to know why Seun and his brother were arrested, adding that instead of explaining to him, some of the policemen beat him up, accusing him of being the father of robbers.
