Police Dismiss Bribe-Seeking Inspector Who Killed Osun Tailor

A police inspector Ago Egharevbe has been dismissed for allegedly brutalising a 20-year-old fashion designer Ayomide Taiwo.

The victim was allegedly attacked by the inspector on Wednesday at Obokun, leading to his death in a hospital on Sunday.

Osun police spokesperson Opalola Yemisi in a statement explained that Mr Egharevbe, attached to Obokun Divisional Police Station, was arrested after the incident.

Yemisi said the inspector was tried in an orderly room and that the police commissioner Undie Adie had recommended his dismissal to the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu.

She said the commissioner of police would not condone any act of indiscipline, brutality, unprofessional behaviour from any member of the force under his command.

“He will be charged to court on Monday for murder. CP Adie and the entire Osun Police Command commiserate with the family and friends of Ayomide Taiwo on the death of their loved one as we promised to ensure justice is served,” the spokesperson said.

The deceased’s brother Oladimeji Wasiu told the news media that the incident happened when he and his late brother were returning on a motorcycle to Osogbo from Iragbiji, their home town, where they went for the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

Wasiu said when they got to Ilahun village along Ibokun road at about 3:30 pm, they met four police officers at a checkpoint who ordered the motorcyclist to stop.

“One of the police officers stopped us and requested for money, when my brother brought out money to give him, he saw that he had a huge amount in his pocket, this angered him and he hit him with the butt of his gun on his head.

“And immediately we fell down from the motorcycle while the remaining three officers ran away,” he said.
