A 25-year-old man identified as Daniel, was allegedly killed by men of the Oodua Peoples Congress OPC guarding his neighborhood at Cele street at Volks bus stop along the Badagry expressway on Wednesday December 18th.
According to a friend of the deceased who reached out to LIB, trouble started for late Daniel on Monday December 16th when he returned home from an outing in the night and had a faceoff with an OPC member. Both men exchanged words and afterwards Daniel retired to his hoouse.
On Wednesday night, December 18th while he was at home in company of his friends, Daniel received a phone call from his girlfriend and stepped out of his apartment to receive the call. While he was outside, he saw the head of the OPC security officers and decided to narrate what transpired the other day between him and one of his officers.
According to the friend, as Daniel was narrating what happened, the suspect stepped forward with a gun and threatened to shoot him dead, accusing him of making false claims to his boss. Daniel got angry and told the suspect he couldn’t shoot him in a place where others are. Within a split second, the OPC officer pulled the trigger and fired a shot at Daniel on the chest. He died instantly.
The suspect fled the scene of the incident and has been on the run since then. The matter was reported to the Ojo state police command and the head of the security agent was arrested but has reportedly been released on bail.
