Extra-Judicial Killings: Activist Backs Aragbiji  Over Cousin’s Murder …Wants IGP To Fish Out Trigger Happy Cop 


A rights activist, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman has thrown his weight behind the position of Osun monarch, the Aragbiji of Irabiji, Oba Abdur-Rasheed Ayotunde Olabomi, Odundun IV over the killing of his

Cousin, Prince Saheed Olabomi by trigger happy Police Officer,one Sergeant Adamu Garauba on July 27th,2021,during the gridlock at the Oke-Oniti area of Osogbo, the State capital.

Penultimate week, the monarch during a Press conference held at his Palace in Iragbiji, alleged the authority of Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in the land of shielding Sergeant Garuba from facing the law for 

killing the younger Olabomi despite the report of the autopsy claiming that Olabomi died as a result of gunshot fire on his head by Garuba, insisting that the Police have refused to make the Garuba and his cohorts available in Court for their trial.

According to Oba Olabomi, “Since the incidence, the Nigeria Police

Force Osun State Command led by Mr. Olawale Olokode, the Commandant

Mopol 39, Mr Sebastian Moorkwap whose Aides are the person who

committed the act and especially the Assistant Inspector General of

Police (AIG) Zone XI Mr. Mukan Joseph Gobum have conspired to sweep

the ignoble act of criminality of the personnel under the carpet”.

Speaking on the issue on Monday through a signed Press Statement,

Sulaiman who called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the

Chairman, Police Service Commission (PSC) and Minister of Police

Affairs, to take immediate necessary action on the officer and his

cohorts alleged of committing dastard act by ensuring that they made

them available in court to face their prosecution of killing innocent

young Olabomi at the prime age.

He urged the Police authorities in the country, particularly, the

Inspector General of Police (IGP), Baba Usman Alkali to fish-out the

trigger happy Sergeant Garuba and his fellow-travellers to face the

music of the crime being committed in the Court of law by bringing

them to justice in order to serve as deterrent to others, stating that

It is Saheed Olabomi today, it might be another Nigeria citizen


Saluting the courage of Oba Olabomi to take the matter up with the

authority of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in the press, Sulaiman who

is the Executive Chairman of the Centre for Human Rights and Social

Justice (CHRSJ) maintained that his organization (CHRSJ) would not

allow the young Olabomi to die in vain by getting justice for the

family of the deceased.

CHRSJ Chief added that the rights group would soon write the Petition

Letter to the appropriate quarters including President Muhammadu

Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and host of others for their

necessary action on the subject matter.

Further speaking, Sulaiman who doubles as a Convener, Save Lagos Group

(SLG), urged the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Olawale Olokode not

to allow 35 year old Police Officer attached to Dada Estate Police

Station, Rauf Fawale, die in vain, commending the State Government

under the leadership of Governor Gboyega Oyetola for approving the

Coroner inquest to unravel the alleged killing of the late Police Cop

by men of State Security Service (SSS),believing that the Corona Panel

headed by Chief Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara would do justice to the

sensitive issue.

It would be recalled that late Fawale, was said to have attended a

birthday party organized by his colleague identified as Inspector

Modinat Badmus on January 21, 2021 when a fight broke out at the party

held at Riverside Club in Osogbo, informing that the fight ensued

between three DSS officials, who were also attending the party, and

some guests.Fawale was said to have intervened before he was beaten

mercilessly and brutalized and later died after at the hospital as a

result of injuries sustained.
