However, as a result of the wounds sustained, he was said to have died in the hospital at midnight in the presence of his parents who travelled to Lagos after they learnt of his arrest.
“When I got to the hospital, his parents had arrived to look after him. His hands and legs were swollen. His mouth was wide open and he could not talk. You could see several bleeding spots all over his body. I do not know what information the police received, but I can tell you that Kazeem is an easygoing man in this area. He is a trader who deals in Aluminium products, and he has a younger brother who stayed with him. He should not have died in this cruel way.”
On Friday morning from about 10 am, a large number of aggrieved youths in the area protested Oyolola’s death to the police division. However, they were said to have been resisted by the Rapid Response Squads, who allegedly shot into the air to scare away the protesters.
