A final year student of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Fisayo Olorunfemi has been reported to have been killed today by a group of angry youths for causing an accident which resulted in the death of a teenage girl identified as Islamat Bello and a motorcyclist whose name was not given.
As gathered by NIGERIA NEWS, Olorunfemi who until his death was a student of the Department of Building Technology drove a Toyota Camry car with registration number AAA 463 DV and accidentally hit a commercial motorcycle conveying late Bello.
According to an eyewitness account, the young girl died on the spot.
Her death, however, caused some youths who were present at the scene of the incident to lynch Olorunfemi.
The Incident was confirmed by the Osun State Commissioner of Police Mr Fimihan Adeoye who condemned the actions of the youths.
Adeoye described the incident as a very unfortunate one as he also expresses shock over the lynching of the final year student.
In the words of Adeoye, “I’m surprised and worried that people can still engage in mob action in this age over an accident. They just killed that student for nothing because his death now cannot bring the young lady back. It was very unfortunate. People should shun this kind of uncivilised behaviour.”
Also confirming the incident was the Police Public Relations Officer for Osun State Police Command, Folashade Odoro.
Odoro disclosed that the remains of the students and the motorcyclist have been deposited in Ede General Hospital’s morgue.
She also revealed that the vehicle and the motorcycle involved in the accident have been moved by the police from the scene of the incident.
