An old man was on Monday beaten to coma, allegedly by men of the Ogun State Parking Management (OGSPAM) in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Reports have it that the man identified as Chief Adeleke Olubajo was accused of parking his Honda pilot car at a wrong place at Isale-Igbein, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
It was gathered that Olubajo, who was identified as the CEO of Asiwaju Kakaku Motors, had parked his vehicle, waiting for someone who went to get something by the roadside.
He was accused of parking on the bridge by the OGSPAM officers and this led to argument.
While it was learnt that the Ogun Parking Management officers allegedly dragged the man out of his vehicle and beat him to stupor, leaving the man lying unconscious by the roadside.
They were said to have fled the scene, leaving their patrol vehicle behind to avoid being lynched by angry residents.
The victim, who was said to have driven himself to the area in white native attire, was seen on the floor with a singlet and a shot.
Eyewitnesses said Policemen from Ibara police station, however, arrived at the scene and helped the unconscious man.
When contacted, the General Manager of OGSPAM, Engr Wale Yusuf, confirmed the incident.
Yusuf said the case is now at the Ibara police station while investigation was ongoing
