Afenifere, Yoruba socio- political organisation, has urged the police not to cover-up the murder of alternative medicine practitioner, Fatai Yusuf, better known as “Oko Oloyun”. Yusuf was shot dead on the Eruwa-Igboora Road in the Ibarapa Central Area of Oyo State on Thursday.
The police had linked his death to the alleged fraud discovered in his Lagos office. But in a statement yesterday, Afenifere’s National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, accused the police of attempting to divert public attention, rather than admitting that the area is “a notorious axis of Fulani bandits”.
“The attention of Afenifere has been called to the brutal murder of Oko Oloyun in the continued sad and long story of insecurity in Yoruba land. We pray for the repose of the soul of the gentleman and we promise to take keen interest in the investigations into the dastardly act,” the statement read. “Smarting from the abandoned investigation into the July 12, 2019 murder of Mrs Funke Olakunrin’s murder we urge the police not to attempt another cover – up on this murder.
