Man Beats Ogun Okada Operator To Death For Refusing Him Ride

Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a 40-year-old man, Michael Salako, for allegedly beating a motorcyclist, who refused to give him a ride.

The incident happened last Wednesday on Sanni Street, Lafenwa, Abeokuta.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested following a distress call received by the Divisional Police Officer, Lafenwa Divisional Headquarters, around noon on the day of the incident that an Okada rider had been beaten to death.

The PPRO stated, “Upon the distress call, the DPO, CSP Samuel Aladegoroye, mobilised his men and moved to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, the suspect, who claimed to have known the deceased in their community, informed the police that he asked the motorcyclist to convey him somewhere with his motorcycle the previous day and the deceased refused.

“He stated further that when he saw him the following day, he was trying to ask him the reasons for refusing to convey him to his destination the previous day and the altercation resulted in a fight between them.

“While the fight was going on, the deceased collapsed and passed away.

“The corpse of the victim, simply identified as Abudu, has been deposited in the morgue for autopsy.”

Oyeyemi added that the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the homicide section of the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
