Our son is not a fraudster... family of late 21-year-old Idris cries for justice

The family of a 21-year-old apprentice of aluminium fabrication, Idris Ajibola, who was allegedly chased to the point of death in a ghastly motor accident on Tuesday, by men of Joint Task Force in Osogbo, has vigorously demanded for thorough investigation to get to the root of the matter and bring perpetrators to book.

The deceased family while speaking with Dailypost on Wednesday, urged the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammad Adamu, and the Osun State government to investigate the death of their loved one.

Idris, who is seeking admission to a higher institution, to study Engineering, was involved in a fatal accident on Tuesday with three of his friends.

Idris, a resident of Ofatedo, in Egbedore Local Government Area of Osun State was identified as Remi in the earlier report.

The deceased was said to have followed two of his friends, Raheem Abdullahi and Dayo to Osun Mall in Osogbo to buy bread, where they met one other Abdulraheem Adekunle Taflad who went to the store with one of his father’s cars.

The father of the deceased, simply identified as Mr Ajibola, who could not speak much, told Daily Post that his son, Idris, was an apprentice of Aluminium fabrication and not an Internet fraudster.

He asserted that Idris, who was tagged Internet fraudster by the police, came back from Sagamu in Ogun state last week where he was learning the vocation.

The deceased’s elder sister, Rukayat Ajibola, urged the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammad Adamu, and the Osun state government to investigate the death of his brother.

She urged the government to ensure that the matter was not swept under the carpet.

She said, “I urge the government and IGP to investigate my brother’s death. The government should do something about the killing of youths in the country.”
