The Oyo State Police Command, yesterday, arrested one Adeoye Adekunle, who allegedly knocked down a commercial motorcyclist identified as Agbo Godwin, along Ring Road, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
It was gathered that Adekunle became very angry after being overtaken by the deceased, while driving in his Lexus SUV with Reg. No. EKY 337 EL along High Court/Ring Road.
The command’s spokesman, Adewale Osifeso, in a statement, the deceased was knocked down by Adekunle following an initial argument that ensued between them.
He explained that the deceased, who was riding an unregistered Bajaj Boxer Motorcycle, dangerously overtook the suspect’s vehicle at a point of negotiation, leading to the initial provocation on the part of the suspect, leading to a verbal exchange of insults from both parties.
Osifeso said: “Friday, 06/01/2023 at about 2030hrs, one Agbo Emmanuel (brother to the deceased) reported a case of fatal motor accident involving his younger brother, one Agbo Godwin ‘m’ aged 32 years (now deceased) and Adeoye Adekunle ‘m’ aged 37 years, who ran over his brother with his Lexus SUV with Reg. No EKY 337 EL along High Court/Ring Road after an argument that earlier ensued between them.
“Consequential to scientific findings and other forensic evidence gathered, the Commissioner of Police, Oyo State Police Command, CP Adebowale Williams, has ordered that the case be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department.
“The suspect would be charged to court upon completion of diligent investigations…”
“Further developments will be communicated accordingly,” the statement concluded.”
