A mother, Mrs Titilayo Ajibola, is seeking N5bn as compensation from the police for allegedly chasing her 21-year-old boy, Idris Ajibola, to death in 2020.
Titilayo, who appeared before the Panel of Inquiry investigating police brutality and extrajudicial killings on Saturday, accused personnel of the Osun State Joint Task Force (JTF) of causing the death of her son on September 15, 2020.
The JTF officers were said to have chased the vehicle Idris was in till it had an accident.
“I am living in sadness since my son was killed by JTF. I want the panel to help me get justice by prosecuting the officers.
“I suffered when I wanted to give birth to him, I raised him in pain and the period that he started taking care of me, he was killed.
“I demand N5 billion as compensation for what was done by the JTF.”
One of the occupants in the car with Idris on the day, Adedayo Oyeleke, in his narration alleged that the JTF had threatened to shot them when they were flagged down.
The UNIOSUN student said,
“On 15 September 202, he was with Idris and other friends at home cooking beans. Around 2 pm on that day, we went to Osun Mall to buy bread in a car. After we bought the bread, on our way home, a red patrol van of JTF waved us to stop, which we did. They parked side by side with our car alleging we are internet fraudsters.
“We oppose the allegation and one of the officers threatened to shoot us. He said if he killed one of us, we will all agree to the allegations. He cocked the gun, we were all scared than our driver, Abdulsalam Adekunle ignited the car and run. The JTF gave us a hot chase and we had a fatal accident at East-by-pass dual carriage road, Ebuoluwa area. When they saw what they caused they did not wait, they ran away from the scene. Something pierced the stomach of Idris Ajibola and all his intestines were out. Idris died on the spot.”
The counsel for the petitioner, Mr Kanmi Ajibola tendered photographs of the scene of the accident and the deceased, Idris to the panel and it was admitted.
He prayed the panel to record that the petition was brought on behalf of the family and add the compensation of N5 billion to it.
The Chairman of the panel, Justice Akinwale Oladimeji in his ruling said they had a similar petition of one of the occupants in the vehicle that sustained a head injury.
He adjourned the case to the 29th of January 2021 for further hearing.
