Aragbiji of Iragbiji, Oba AbdulRasheed Olabomi

….Calls On Buhari To Intervene

The Aragbiji of Iragbiji in Osun State, Oba AbdulRasheed Olabomi
has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Inspector General of Police, the Committee on Police Affairs at the Senate and the House of Representatives, to call on the AIG Zone XI Osogbo, the Commissioner of Police Osun State and MOPOL 39 Commander Osogbo to stop covering up murder charges against a police officer, Mr. Adamu Garuba and others who carried out the killing of one Saheed Olabomi on July 27, 2021 in Osogbo.

Oba Olabomi, while addressing a press conference on Wednesday in Iragbiji said the police officer, Sgt. Adamu Garuba was said to have pulled the trigger that sent an harmless Saheed Ajibola Olabomi to his untimely death without any iota of provocation.

According to the monarch, “I represent the Olabomi dynasty of the Ajibode Ruling House, Iragbiji whose son was brutally murdered by a team of policemen led by Sgt. Adamu Garuba “M” Aged 39years and his other accomplices Sgt. Ajibola Dupe “F” Aged 37years, Sgt. Atighir Lawrence “M” Aged 40years and Sgt. John Yilkur “M” Aged 38years on July 27, 2021 at about 5:00pm at Oke Onitii area, Osogbo.

“Since the incidence, the Nigeria Police Osun State Command led by Mr. Olawale Olokode the Commandant Mopol 39 Mr. Sebastian Moorkwap whose Aids are the personnel who committed the act and especially the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Zone XI Mr. Mukan Joseph Gobum have conspired to sweep the ignoble act of criminality of the personnel under the carpet.

“Good enough, the family insisted that our son be taken to the hospital and Autopsy was conducted by the UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital, Osogbo which established the fact that Mr. Saheed Olabomi was killed as a result of the injuries he received from the shot fired by Garuba Adamu.

“All efforts at ensuring that Adamu Garuba and others were tried by the police (orderly Room Trial) failed even though our family and members of the public were made to believe that the Police Officer had been dismissed and that he would be prosecuted.

“For more than six months, the suspects were not arraigned. Our family had to seek the taken-over of the matter by the state. Yet, it took several months before the file could be released to the Ministry.

“Even after the release of the file, we have been in court twice, the police personnel were not brought to court despite the service of court order to produce the suspects on the Commissioner of Police.

“On inquiry, it was discovered that Aig Mr. Mukan, Joseph Gobum was said to have been pressured by the Commandant Mopol 39 Mr. Moorkwap to subvert justice and exonerate a murder suspect in a celebrated murder case.”

The traditional ruler, however, appealed to Buhari to kindly intervene in an attempt to bury clear case of murder all because the perpetrator is a police personnel.

Olabomi, also called on Mr Usman Alkali Baba, the IGP to direct the AIG Zone XI and his other Co-travellers to revisit the matter and allow justice to take its full course on the culprits.
