A fashion designer has died after allegedly being brutalised by a police inspector.

The 20-year-old fashion designer who was identified as Ayomide Taiwo died after he was assaulted by one Inspector Ago Egharepbe.

The inspector is said to be attached to Ibokun Divisional Headquarters, Osun State. The assault reportedly happened on Tuesday August 4, around 3:30pm at Ilahun community.

Wasiu Olademeji, who was riding on a motorcycle with Taiwo at the time of the incident said that a policeman stopped them and demanded for N50 bribe.

According to Wasiu, the policeman who was drunk allegedly attacked Taiwo with a rifle after he saw a bundle of N50,000 when the deceased brought out the money.

Wasiu said,

“The drunken policeman suddenly approached us and hit Ayomide’s head with the butt of his rifle.

The two of us fell from the motorcycle while the three other policemen ran away.

Ayomide was lying unconsciously on the floor and was bleeding in his nose, mouth and ears. I carried the bike off him.

Another policeman who was not at the scene when it happened helped in carrying my friend to Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo.

Ayomide has been in a coma since we took him to the hospital due to severe injury he sustained on his head.

The DPO gave us N30, 000 for the hospital bill. Ayomide is the last child of his mother.”

We gathered from Yemisi Opalola, Osun Police spokesperson, that the officer who brutalised the fashion designer has been dismissed and will be charged to court on Monday August 10, for murder.
