Four arrested for allegedly beating policeman to death in Ogun (photo) by Nairaplace(m): Tue Sep 2020 08:54am
The police in Ogun state have arrested four men for allegedly beating a yet-to-be-identified police officer to death in Dalemo, Sango, in the Ado-Odo-Ota Local Government Area of the state on Sunday, September 13.



In a statement released on Monday, September 14, the spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the four arrested men identified as Jelili Ismaila, 22; Amidu Bankole, 34; Elijah Samson, 36; and Moses Proboye, 34, were reportedly hired by a truck driver who had an argument with the deceased police officer and his colleague



Oyeyemi said the deceased constable and one other were escorting their principal from Idah in Kogi State to Lagos State when the incident happened.



“Preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased officer and one other escorted their principal from Idah in Kogi State to Lagos State. On their way passing through Sango Ota, a truck driver, Jelili Ismaila, drove dangerously and almost pushed their vehicle off the road.

While trying not to hit the vehicle conveying the officers, the truck entered a pothole as a result of which its tyre got punctured.

This made the two policemen to come down and caution the truck driver to always be mindful of other road users. But the driver accused them of being at fault, thereby mobilizing hoodlums who attacked the officers and their principal with weapons and beat the deceased to a coma.

Having realised that the policeman may not survive the attack, the driver and his hired hoodlums took to their heels. But luck ran out on four of them when the DPO and his men on a tip-off stormed their hideout and got them arrested, while four others escaped.

The remains of the deceased officer have been deposited at the General Hospital Ota mortuary.” the statement read



Oyeyemi added that the police has launched a manhunt for the other fleeing suspects.
