The Apex Yoruba sociopolitical organization, Afenifere has chided the Nigeria Police over what he termed hasty conclusion on the murder of popular traditional medicine practitioner, Alhaji Fatai Yusuf fondly called Oko Oloyun.
The Spokesman of the group, Yinka Odumakin in a statement made available to the media stated thus:
“The attention of Afenifere has been called to the brutal murder of Oko Oloyun in the continued sad and long story of insecurity in Yoruba land.
“We pray for the repose of the soul of the gentleman and we promise to take kern interest in the investigations into the dastardly act.
“Smarting from the abandoned investigation into the July 12, 2019 murder of Mrs Funke Olakunrin’s murder we urge the police not to attempt another cover – up on this murder.
“We say this because we have noted the rushed statement of the police suggesting a desperate attempt to divert attention from the fact that the Eruwa-Igbo Ora route on which he was killed is a notorious axis of Fulani bandits.”
Odumakin said faulted the police claim saying “the police rushing to the press unprofessionally to say he discovered fraud in his office before the incident without carrying out any investigation may foreclose other possible leads.
“Every life of a human being is precious to us and this is another test to the capacity of the Nigerian police seriously challenged at the, moment.”
