The bus driver who has been identified as 50-year-old Akeem Olanipekun was beaten to death by the hoodlums, after an argument ensued between them at the Imo area of the town. Sources who were present at the time of the fight, disclosed that the bus driver who was beaten to death, had accompanied his friend who operates a rental business in the community to erect canopies for a ceremony at the Imo quarters.

“When they were about erecting the canopy, the ‘area boys’ approached them for the payment of ‘Owo Ile’ before the canopies could be erected.

This led to a hot argument between the deceased and the boys, who went home and brought the charm with which they beat Akeem over the non-payment of the ‘Owo Ile’. The deceased, after being beaten with the charm, was shivering and later gave up.

Currently, there is tension in the town because of possible reprisal by the family of the deceased, who had two wives and some children” an eyewitness said.

The police Area Commander for Ikare Akoko, Razak Rauf, who confirmed the incident disclosed that the corpse of the deceased had been deposited in the mortuary of the Ondo State Specialist Hospital, Ikare Akoko, as the police has intensified effort to arrest the perpetrators who are currently at large.

  25. Idleness is a dangerous disease. Had these boys had something doing, they wouldn’t have had the opportunity of becoming nuisance to the society.

  26. This is jungle justice and it is unacceptable in a modern society, they should have reported to the appropriate authority to handle the matter and not take laws into their hands.

  27. This is what joblessness can cause.. Where have I heard that you pay money to put canopies for function.. And if that’s the way things are done there, why then attacking the driver instead of the person doing the function.. This is just how an innocent man lost his life for nothing, leaving 2 wives and children.. May his soul rest in peace Amen.. And may police find the people involved in this..

  28. please can someone ask the hoodlums,have they now gotten the money(owoile) after they’ve killed the poor man.

  29. It’s evident that the best way to stay alive is to desist from argument as people could go to any length just to prove their point
    And that includes killing

  30. They will not go and look for jobs it is just to be reaping from where they did not so all in the name of “owo-ile”

  31. What will we do about this area boys of a thing,the way the beat people without caring if the person is of there father’s age or not, God we need you

  32. These area boys should be thrown into prison. Whether the land belongs to them or not does not give them the right to behave as they want. May the soul of the driver rest in peace.
