Protest In Ibadan As Amotekun Reportedly Kills Commercial Motorcyclist by Ennybouy(m): 6:55pm On Jan 14
A commercial motorcyclist has died after he was hit by a stray bullet allegedly released from the gun of operatives of the Amotekun Corps in Oyo state.

Motorcyclist operators have taken to the streets in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, to protest the alleged killing of their colleague by the State Security Network Agency popularly known as Amotekun.

The commercial motorcyclist, identified as Tosin Thomas, was hit by the stray bullet around 11pm on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

Amotekun operatives were said to be on patrol around Mokola area of Ibadan when a gunshot was heard allegedly hitting Thomas, NAN reports.

According to a witness account, Thomas was rushed to the hospital for medical attention but later gave up the ghost in the early hours of Thursday.

The deceased was not on his bike at the time of the incident, the witness added.

This must have triggered the frustrations of other motorcycle operators in the area who trooped to the street to demand for justice for the alleged killing of Thomas.

The protesters carried the remains of the deceased around Mokola before they eventually dumped it in the middle of the road.


This resulted in a serious traffic around Mokola Roundabout and traders were forced to hurriedly close their shops for safety.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CSP Olugbenga Fadeyi, who confirmed the incident in an interview with NAN, also added that normalcy has been restored in the affected area.

On Saturday, January 9, 2021, Amotekun operatives reportedly clashed with herdsmen at Aiyete in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.

The incident resulted in the death of seven people while houses were also burnt down.

shocked

I've said it here countless times that a black man doesn't have what it takes to protect his own life let alone his fellow man's life....

If you like,give a black man bow and arrow,him go still misfire one day one day

Abi na gun you wor put for him hand,it won't only possess him but will also make him feel like a demi god above his fellow negroes

I think every black man has a DNA that links him to cave men Even though it has not be scientifically be proven...

I don't see why Amotekun should be in the city.

O thought they were created to battle the Fulani herdsmen. Why are they killing the citizens they were meant to protect.

This is the end of Amotekun.

na wa . Is this not seyi makinde that many people used to hail as the best thing to happen to oyo state? He recruited all his politicial thugs to head amotekun , now he cant checkmate them. Less than a year they have started terribly more than disbanded SARS?
The funniest thing is that it was his initiatives before other Yoruba governors adopted it. Whats the difference between buhari silence over fulani headers and this now. Blood sucking leaders.
