1 Mins read

The Amotekun has revealed the identity of its operative who allegedly killed a commercial motorcyclist, Tosin Thomas in Ibadan.

In a statement on Thursday, by the media officer of the agency, Mrs Ayolola Adedoja, the Commandant of Amotekun, Col. Olayinka Olayanju (retd.), said Afolabi acted outside the guideline of the security outfit and had been dismissed and handed over to the police for prosecution.

The Amotekun commandant said the agency regretted the loss of Thomas’s life, adding that the leadership was already in touch with the family.

The commandant said the team leader around Mokola received a call that there was an armed robbery at Mokola and seven members of the agency proceeded to the place.

“On arrival at the scene of the alleged crime, it turned out that it was not an armed robbery operation, though a crowd had gathered.

“The team leader, sensing no immediate danger to anyone at the scene immediately proceeded to speak with the station manager. While he was with the manager, he heard a gunshot.

“As it turned out, one of his team members, by the name Afolabi Kazeem, who felt sufficiently threatened by the crowd, which included some hoodlums armed with cutlasses and other weapons, opened fire to supposedly scare away the crowd.

“Unfortunately, his shot hit one Mr Tosin Thomas, 23, who was subsequently confirmed dead.

“The corps has found that Afolabi Kazeem with ammunition number AM031849 acted outside the Amotekun Corps’ protocols.

“For this reason, he has been summarily dismissed from the corps and handed over to the police for prosecution.

“Also, his team leader, George Idowu, is being thoroughly investigated and will face all necessary sanctions,” he added.
