Man Allegedly Knocked Down By Police Vehicle Dies In Osun



The bike

Osun Police Patrol has allegedly knocked down a middle-aged man, Taiwo Kajogbola along Kajola/Osunjela road.

CityMirrorNews gathered that the deceased who was riding a lady’s bike was going to give his parents some foodstuff to break their fasting on Sunday.

According to a source, the deceased allegedly refused to stop at Kajola for a stop-and-search exercise when the police stopped him on his way back to Osogbo.

His refusal to stop prompted a hot chase by the police who purportedly hit his bike from behind when they caught up with him at Osunjela, leaving him in a pool of blood.

Reports say the police, having realised the gravity of the incident, made a U-turn and left the scene.

Kajogbola was unlucky as he did not survive the incident. He gave up the ghost when some good Samaritans were rushing him to the hospital.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Yemisi Opalola said she’s just hearing about the incident but assured that investigation is ongoing to unravel the cause of the incident.
