Onadipe Oluwatosin, a Computer Science graduate of Olabisi Onabanjo University in Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, allegedly died after being hit with an iron rod by a motor park official in Ago, Odogbolu Local Government Area.

His body was allegedly buried by the roadside by officials from the Odogbolu Local Government Area after it was reportedly dumped by police officers.

According to the deceased’s father, Raymond Onadipe, Oluwatosin left home on December 17 to attend a Redemption Camp program but was unreachable after he had spoken with his brother on the phone.

Onadipe mentioned that despite multiple unsuccessful attempts to reach him, they reported him missing at the Ago Police Station. However, some days later, his phone rang, and someone who claimed to have found it on the roadside answered it.

He said further,
“On Friday, December 22, the brother tried the line again and it rang. The person who picked up the call told us they found the phone on the road and that the owner could come and pick it at Ode-Remo. I was then suspicious that Ode-Remo and Ago are distant to each other and how come his phone got to Ode-Remo.

“The next morning by 6 am, I went to Ode-Remo and I reported at the police station where I was assigned with police officers to accompany me to get the phone. When I got to the point of collection, the person introduced himself as the Seriki Hausa of the community.
The Seriki told us that two of his boys who went to Ijebu-Ijesa in Ago-Iwoye were the ones who saw the phone. The police arrested those who found the phone and we moved to Ago Police Station

“On Monday (December 25), I was called that those who picked the phone took the police to where they picked it from, but they discovered that a corpse was buried along the roadside by health workers from Odogbolu Local Government Area, which was said to be his corpse, and that I have two options of either exhuming his body or leaving it where it was buried.

“I met with the local government chairman on the process of exhuming his body from where he was buried and presented his picture. There were disparities in the pictures I presented and the one presented by the LG chair who said they learnt it was a case of a hit-and-run accident.
The disparities made me suspect foul play, but I decided to let it go and accept the fate that my son was dead.”

The father pointed out that the circumstances regarding his son’s passing took a different turn when an eyewitness informed his eldest son that the deceased was allegedly struck by an official from the Ago motor park while preaching on the premises on the day they last spoke with him, which the police confirmed after several back and forth.

“When I told the police about the allegation of being hit at the motor park, they said truly they went there but they did not pick him up, and that he had no injuries on his body. Later, when one of the police teams that went to the park was asked to show the pictures taken at the scene, there was blood all over his body.

“I queried why they left him alone and how someone drenched in blood could walk that long distance from the park to where his body was found. I moved the case to the Area Command where the Area Commander ordered the arrest of officials of the park where my son was allegedly hit on the head and the police team that went to the park.
I later learnt from the Area Command that the police picked him up after he was hit by the said motor park official but how he got dumped by the main road and his eventual death remained a mystery begging for an answer.

“I am appealing to the police authorities to bring the killers of my son to justice because I have been in sorrow since I learned about his death,”
Onadipe said.

Confirming the incident, State Commissioner of Police CP Abiodun Alamutu stated that the suspects were in custody while a preliminary investigation was underway to unravel the circumstances leading to his death

“The incident happened, the person alleged to have hit him with an iron rod and the police officers allegedly involved have been taken into custody.

“We are conducting a preliminary investigation into the reported position of the family. We will come up with a statement on the issue in the next few days,”
Alamutu said
