Amotekun killed my son, tagged him cultist – Ogun mother cries out – The Informant247

Mrs Monsurat Alimi, 49, has leveled an allegation of killing against the operatives of Amotekun in Ogun State.

She claimed that the operatives staged the killing of her son, Tunde Olutayo, and tagged him a cultist.

The victim’s mother informed newsmen in Abeokuta, the state capital, on Sunday, that a picture of her son’s corpse was circulated on Facebook and her son referred to as a cultist and armed robber.

It was gathered that, on penultimate Saturday, the operatives of the local security outfit allegedly stormed the victim’s compound in Sokori, Abeokuta and gunned him down, as he tried to escape.

The state’s Amotekun Corps had on Saturday, publicised a statement titled, “Death of notorious Eiye cultist and armed robber”, narrating that the victim met his death when his gang engaged the corps in a gun battle.

The commander of the corps, David Akinremi, who is a retired Commissioner of Police, said: “during this encounter, one Olutayo Tunde a.k.a. Badoo, aged 30 years who is the leader of this group which had previously been involved in Cult killings, armed robberies and other sundry crimes in Abeokuta Metro fired at the operatives and in a swift response, he was shot on the arm in an attempt to disarm him.

“The suspect immediately ran into the nearby bush along with his other cohorts, dropping a locally made pistol which was recovered by the operatives.

“A painstaking search was conducted in the bush where he escaped, during which he was arrested while others escaped.

“He was immediately taken to Ijaye General Hospital for treatment so as to be able to extract useful information from him in respect of his and other members’ involvement in previous cult, related killings, armed robberies and other related crimes in Abeokuta Metro in recent times but was confirmed dead shortly on arrival at the said hospital.

“His death was sad as his being alive would have avail security agencies veritable information that would have helped in stemming the tides of this menace.”

But the mother however falsified the claim of the corps boss, stating that her son was a vulcanizer and not a criminal.

Mrs Alimi said, “It was on Saturday when they called me and said he was at the junction of his workshop and that was where they apprehended him.

“They said he was shot by the Amotekun , the moment he tried to escape from the riverbank. When I got to the place where he was shot, all those that were present said he knew nothing about what he was apprehended for.”

The victim’s mother revealed that her son’s dead body had not been released to her.

She added “We urge the government to help ask the Amotekun to release to us his dead body. He is not a cultist. They did not inform us that he had been killed, it was on Facebook that we saw it.

“We want the government to find out what led to the killing of my son . Please help me , they want to cheat me. They want to use power to cheat me . They killed my son and seized his corpse.”
