The Chief Imam of Onirin Mosque in the Epetedo Area of Lagos Island, Suleiman Ganiyu, has lamented the death of his son, Ibrahim, who was allegedly crushed to death by a Ford car with number plate KRD-437-EJ.

The car was reportedly driven by one Neil Iwara in the Ilubirin area of Adeniji-Adele, Lagos State.

Lamenting, the Chief Imam said,

“I am in deep shock; I can’t believe that my son is gone. I saw him before I went out for a ceremony on the day of the incident; and now, he is dead. He died few days after his birthday.”

PUNCH Metro learnt from Ganiyu that his son, who reportedly went to play football with his friends on Sunday, November 11, 2018, was declared missing when efforts by the family to find him proved abortive.

The father of six explained that his friends assisted in posting Ibrahim’s pictures on the social media in a bid to find the boy, adding that police officers attached to the Adeniji-Adele Police Station later informed him of the death of his son.

“He took advantage of my absence by going out with his friends to play football. I have retrieved his corpse and buried him according to Islamic rites. I also told the police that I was not interested in pressing charges against the driver of the vehicle that knocked down my son.”

The mother of the deceased, Risikat, who does not reside with Suleiman, said the cleric had turned down her request to have Ibrahim in her custody because he needed to be properly monitored.



The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said

“The boy was a missing child because his parents had been searching for him. Unknown to them, he got knocked down by a car at Ilubirin, outward Lagos and close to under the Adeniji-Adele bridge. He was rushed to the Lagos Island General Hospital, where he died.

“When the parents of the boy were contacted, they requested for his remains so that they could bury him in accordance to Islamic burial rites. The case is being investigated at the Adeniji-Adele Police Station and the driver has been arrested for questioning.”
