There was pandemonium in Kajola Community in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State on Sunday as youths in their hundreds mobilized to raze down the police station in the area over police recklessness, leading to the death of three persons including a community leader.
The angry mob thronged the Police Divisional Headquarters in Kajola for allegedly killing their indigenes at the police checkpoints in the area, along Lagos/Benin Expressway on Saturday evening.
They dumped the three corpses at the Police Divisional Headquarters, Kajola, chanting series of protest songs to register their grievances, declaring that they did not want police in the community again.
The victims, David Olowofeyekun, Gbenga Abayomi and Kola Akinduro, who was the Head of Korede Village, were on a motorcycle, heading home from their farms when they met their Untimely death.
The head of Kajola community, Chief Oloruntobi Maiyegun who spoke with journalists on phone, recounted that he had to swing into action the moment he heard that the people were mobilizing to burn the police station.
But the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, dispelled the report of recklessness by the police, saying that the deceased flouted the traffic law and incidentally had an accident.
