Tragedy struck in Abeokuta,
yesterday, when men of the Vigilante
Service of Ogun State, VSO,
reportedly shot dead a student of
Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta,
Moruf Raji, 29, and a staff of a
telecommunication company, MTN
Nigeria, Akeem Usman, 32, while
chasing suspected robbers.
The incident occurred at Adigbe, at
about 1.00 a.m when a team of the
vigilance service allegedly ordered
residents of 18A, Sorinola Avenue,
Oriyanrin, to open their gate for
them to arrest suspected robbers
believed to be hiding in the building.
An eye witness told Vanguard that
some of the residents who were
mostly students refused to open the
gate, suspecting the vigilante men to
be robbers trying to play smart.
The witness further explained that
Moruf and Akeem went out from their
rooms and opened the gate for them
but one of the men of VSO opened fire
on the two men killing them instantly.
Vanguard gathered that men of the
VSO still went ahead to force their
way into the compound after
shooting the two men and ransacked
the rooms, while the victims were
bleeding profusely.
It was further gathered that, the
vigilantes used their patrol vehicle to
rush the victims to the Federal
Medical Centre, Idi-Aba Abeokuta
where they died following excessive
loss of blood.
Vanguard learnt that, Moroof was a
Business Administration student of
MAPOLY who was on one-year
Industrial attachment and Akeem
who was a staff of MTN that go
married seven months ago.
According to findings, Akeem worked
in Lagos but came to Abeokuta to
attend a religious programme
scheduled for 10.00am on Sunday.
He was said to have resolved to sleep
with a family-friend because of the
proximity of the house to the venue
of the programme.
His driver, Abayomi Awoyajo was also
said to have sustained injury after
being battered by the members of
vigilance during the raid.
Narrating the incident Abayomi said
they were all inside when at about
1.00am ,the vigilante men came
asking them to open the door.
“We all thought they were armed
robbers, we started running helter-
skelter, some of us hid in the
wardrobe, while some hid under the
chairs,” he said.
The 30 year old driver, also said the
two victims in pool of their blood
crawled back into the house,crying
loud, while the vigilantes forced their
way into the house to continue
dealing with all of them in a brutal
“They even asked for brother
Akeem’s car key which I gave to
them, but, could not be taken out
because of the security device
installed in it, we were later rushed
to the hospital” he explained.
However, as at the time of filing this
report, all the members of the
vigilante service that were involved in
the act have been arrested by the
police from Adigbe station.
The case was said to have been
transferred to Eleweran Police
Headquarters, Abeokuta but the
Police Public Relations Officer in the
State, Muyiwa Adejobi could not be
reached as at the time of filing this
