A member of Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Bamidele Salam, representing Ede North, South/Egbedero/ Ejigbo Federal Constituency, has given the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammad Adamu, seven days ultimatum to apprehend the policemen who allegedly chased a 21-year-old, Idris Ajibola to death in Osogbo.
The federal lawmaker on Thursday also ordered Osun State Government to implement a juridical panel of enquiry on the incident.
Recall that Idris, an apprentice of aluminum fabrication, was allegedly chased to the point of death in a ghastly motor accident on Tuesday, by men of Joint Task Force in Osogbo.
The deceased was said to have followed two of his friends, Raheem Abdullahi and Dayo to Osun Mall in Osogbo to buy bread, where they met one other Abdulraheem Adekunle Taflad who went to the store with one of his father’s car.
According to findings, Idris was enrolled at Love and Peace Technology Training Centre in Sagamu Ogun State to learn engineering.
He further said that after the seven days ultimatum, he will sue the Nigeria Police for aggravated damages.
Salam, who is from the same constituency with the deceased, while speaking with journalists in Osogbo, threatened to sue Nigeria Police for aggravated damages if the force did not parade the perpetrators.
According to him, the police command in the state has been stagnant in their investigation saying there is no record of arrest since 24hours after the incident.
He described the security personnel act on Nigerians especially youths as a barbaric.
Salam said, “I am afraid this will not go under the carpet like all the thousands of cases similar to this. I gave the IGP seven days ultimatum to arrest the Police perpetrators who chased Idris to the point of death.
“I call on Osun State Government to constitute a juridical panel of enquiry on the incident. This kind of things must stop society,” he added.
