Eyewitness Narrates How Oyo Policemen Killed Young Man, Labelled Him Fraudster After Stealing N700,000 From Him

File image According to a report by SaharaReporters, a young Nigerian ma0n, whose identity might not be determined yet, has actually been eliminated by operatives of the Oyo state police command in the Apata location of the state.

It was found out that the young man was tortured to death by the cops around 9 am on Friday after being forced to transfer the amount of N700,000 from his account to one of the police officers.

It was learnt that the police tagged the young man an internet fraudster, commonly called Yahoo young boy.

An eyewitness told SaharaReporters that the young man was on a motorcycle when the authorities stopped him and requested for his identity card.

A commercial motorcyclist who talked to SaharaReporters stated, “It occurred around 9 am. Among our coworkers took the young man from Apata; he was going to Dugbe. When the authorities stopped him, he was asked to highlight his identity card but he informed them he was a trainee.

“The authorities requested for his account balance. It was about N700,000 and they asked him to transfer it. After transferring it, they continued to beat him up until the young boy was unconscious. He was rushed to the medical facility by the authorities themselves and he later on died. That was why the youths are revolting.

“I fulfilled them while beating the guy. I could not work once again after the incident for fear of reprisal. The cops have requested for backup from Iyaganku. That is why the cops have actually taken over Apata area command.”

Efforts to reach the state cops spokesperson, Adewale Osifeso, were not effective as he did not address calls to his mobile line nor reply to a text message sent to him.
