Adeleye Eniola : “Police Officer Allegedly Kills SS1 Student in Ogun State, Youth Group Demands Justice”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : A tragic incident unfolded in Ogun State, Nigeria, as a police officer, identified only as “Freedom,” allegedly caused the death of Adeleye Eniola, a student at Mayigi Community High School. The officer, who is attached to the Ilaro Area Command, reportedly struck and killed Eniola with his vehicle while in pursuit of a motorcyclist. In addition to the loss of life, several other students were injured in the incident.

The local community, represented by the Ipokia Local Government Youth Forum (IPYF), expressed their outrage at the actions of the police officer. They condemned the incident as “unprofessional and barbaric.” The secretary of the youth group, Adeyemi Olusegun, issued a statement criticizing the police’s handling of the situation. Olusegun highlighted a pattern of police misconduct in the area and accused the officers of being “specially trained to kill, maim, extort our people and take away our rights as citizens.”

The IPYF demanded prompt action from the authorities, calling for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the officer responsible for the tragedy. The incident has raised concerns about the unchecked power of the police force and their ability to act outside their jurisdictions.

Efforts to seek a response from the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Omolola Odutola, were unsuccessful. Calls made to her went unanswered, and messages sent to her were left unresponded.

This unfortunate incident has once again brought attention to the need for accountability and proper training within the Nigerian police force. The loss of a young life and the injuries sustained by other students have deeply affected the community. It is crucial that justice is served and measures are taken to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

As investigations continue, the community mourns the loss of Adeleye Eniola and hopes for a fair and thorough investigation into the actions of the police officer involved.
