The Chairman National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) Osun chapter, Comrade Ismail Abdulazeez has condemned the killing of a borehole drilling truck driver, Kabiru Babai in Osogbo by a yet to be identified police officer.
This is as he condemned the incessant harassment and killing of civilians by men of the Nigeria police in the State.
Recall that Babai, a 33-year-old man, was shot dead by a notorious Police officer on Friday while he was fixing a company’s truck that broke down along Ikirun/Osogbo road, Ota-Efun area of Osogbo.
It was gathered that the deceased has a pregnant wife and a four-year-old child.
He was brutalized before he was shot dead in the chest at the Ota-Efun area Osogbo.
Comrade Ismail said the organisation has visited the Police Public Relation Officer of Osun Command at the Police Headquarters in Osogbo and asked for the proper investigation of the incident for justice to be served.
According to him, “it is saddening that Police still continue to operate unethically despite the challenges and outcome of last year EndARS.
“Should we now request for the ban of Nigeria Police entirely in our Nation? No, but Police have decided to remain, act unruly and instead to uphold and enforcing law, they are becoming offenders.
“Police have now become murderers and brutal more than the original criminals.”
The chairman, however, charged the State Commissioner of Police through the PRO to bring the culprit to book without any delay as its expected to serve as deterrent to other prospective murderers in the police system.
Ismail condoled with the family of the deceased and the entire well drilling association.
He further urged the government, particularly the Governor who is the Chief Security Officer of the State to further checkmate the operations of the security agencies in order for the State to sustain her high ranking position as the most peaceful State in Nigeria.
