A statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Yemisi Opalola, yesterday, stated that one Prince Eniola Oyeyode of Ejigbo town of Osun State has been arrested over the incident.

Prince Eniola was a friend of the deceased and that the late Prof. Idowu was at the 50th coronation anniversary of his friend’s father – the Ogiyan of Ejigbo – on Saturday before the incident.

Opalola said, “The incident occurred on 27/1/2024 at about 9:48pm after the 50th Coronation Anniversary of the Ogiyan of Ejigbo, Oba Oyeyode Oyesosin where one Prince Eniola Oyeyode ‘m’ of Ejigbo Instructed one of his civilian guards named Hammed Abdul Jelili ‘m’ of Ejigbo to fire his double barrel gun into the air to confirm if the gun is in good condition or not, but instead shot directly at the victim and he was rushed to a hospital but confirmed dead by the Doctor.

“Meanwhile, the Prince Eniola Oyeyode who gave the order to his civilian guard to fire the gun has been arrested and detained.”

The PPRO added that the State’s Commissioner of Police, CP Bzigu Dali Kwazhi, appealed to members of the public, especially the residents of Ejigbo town to remain calm as discreet investigation had commenced immediately.

Meanwhile, Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has ordered an investigation into the killing of Dr Richard Idowu, a.k.a Ade Ori Okin, and the subsequent lynching of the shooter.

Ade Orin Okin was shot dead by a local hunter at Ejigbo at the weekend after the 50th coronation anniversary of the Ogiyan of Ejigbo, Oba Oyeyode Oyesosin, while the hunter was immediately lynched.

Prof. Idowu, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, was said to be a member of the coronation anniversary committee while the incident allegedly happened after a post-anniversary meeting at the house of Prince Eniola Oyeyode in Ejigbo.
