A promising young man, James Ariyo Oluwatosin also known as Soft, has allegedly been shot dead by a trigger-happy police officer along Papa road, Ilaro in Ogun State.
According to reports, the 26-year-old was on his way to his girlfriend’s birthday bash In Abeokuta when the tragic incident occurred.
The police man who shot James was said to have wrongly labeled the deceased as a yahoo boy, Instablog9ja reports.
A source said; “The police officers are saying that Tosin was a suspected Fraudsters and kidnapper, that he shot at them and they had no choice than to retaliate – a fallacy from the pit of hell.
They added that he was driving a tinted car but from videos culled from his WhatsApp status as he was on the trip, shows that the car wasn’t a tinted one. The police officers killed our friend. Their bullet pierced his car and hit him. Residents who were at the scene, rushed him to a nearby hospital where he died and his corpse deposited at the morgue.
We however call on the Inspector General of the Nigeria Police to look into this matter and conduct a proper investigation so that justice can be served.”
A post shared by Instagblog9ja showed the last video Ariyo recorded.
