BREAKING: Riot In Osogbo As Police Allegedly Kills Truck Driver

Fear is apparent in Osogbo following the shooting of a truck driver by a police officer on Friday morning.

According to a witness, the victim was brutalized before being shot dead in the Ota-Efun neighborhood of Osogbo while operating a Shekeena Global borehole drilling truck.

Around 10:30 a.m., the drilling vehicle broke down along Ikirun Way, according to reports.

According to reports, the driver and his crew allegedly blocked the road while attempting to repair the car before police arrived.

According to an eyewitness, police officers descending from a mini commercial bus (Korope) attacked the driver with a shovel under the vehicle before shooting him in the chest with a pistol.

According to eyewitnesses, the police officers immediately removed their uniforms and fled the scene.

According to an eyewitness, police used rifles and tear gas to disperse the enraged throng.

Meanwhile, the driver’s body was hauled away by the cops.

However, Adewale Kareem (Asiri Eniba), the chairman of NURTW Oroki Park Osogbo, arrived on the site after hours to pacify the irate demonstrators and persuade them to unblock the blocked road.

Attempts to contact the police for comment were unsuccessful because the Command’s spokesman, SP Yemisi Opalola, did not answer her phone at the time of filing this report.
