Father of three allegedly tortured to death by Ogun Police over refusal to pay bribe

Seyi Oduyiga, a father of three, has reportedly died following alleged torture while in the custody of the Ogun State Police Command in Nigeria. This incident occurred after his arrest on November 18th around 5:00 pm.

As reported by DAILY POST, Oduyiga was apprehended during a police raid at a time when, according to his family, he had gone out to charge his phone.

Following his arrest, Oduyiga, along with others, was taken to the Awolowo police station in Sagamu. There, the police accused him of being involved in cultism. However, sources from the area, who chose to remain anonymous due to the sensitive nature of the case, informed the DAILY POST reporter that other suspects arrested during the raid asserted that Oduyiga was not a cultist.

She explained “We pleaded for his release but they did not release him. They released the other person arrested, stating that the other one would be released because he did not have tattoos on his body. Seyi was denied bail. He was arrested on Saturday evening, and we went back there on Sunday and were told that Inspector Raji was the IPO. They asked us to come back on Monday; the family representatives did not see the IPO on Monday; they said he had stepped out.informationguidenigeria

“Seyi was begging to be released since he had not committed any offence. My brother who was there said the IPO threatened to ensure he made him suffer. The IPO threatened that he must be taken to Eleweran police headquarters and he was eventually taken there on Tuesday.

“I was living in Ibadan; I had to come to Abeokuta on Thursday evening over the matter. I went to Eleweran on Friday and took along foodstuffs; bread, malt, and bottled water. When I got there, I did not see the IPO; I was asked to wait for him. I got to Eleweran around 10:00 AM and could not see the IPO until 1:00 PM. When I first met him and told him I wanted to see my elder brother, Seyi, he said I should go out and wait until he was finished.

“When I brought the food to the officers and said I wanted to give my brother in the cell, they charged me N2,000, but I paid N1,000 to a policewoman.JAMB Result

“After some time, I lost my patience, went back to the policewoman, and pleaded to be allowed to see my brother, then she agreed and took us to the cells. Some inmates said he had been taken out since morning; we were later called upstairs to meet the Deputy Commissioner. We did not know he wanted to break the bad news to us; he then said, “Your boy was misbehaving in the cell overnight; he was biting the inmates, talking to himself; he was behaving like he had run mad. They took him to the hospital, and on getting to the hospital, he gave up. He just stopped breathing.”

The family is, however, insisting that their child must have been tortured to death for refusing to pay a N200,000 bribe the police had earlier requested.

Responding through a statement, the command’s spokesperson, SP Omolola Odutola, dismissed claims that the victim was tortured to death.NYSC PORTAL

The police spokesperson also noted that both the deceased and one other suspect had earlier made a “confessional statement to being members of the outlawed Buccaneer and Eiye confraternity Secret cult. Seyi confessed he was initiated in 2015.

“The Ogun State Police Command vehemently refutes that the deceased was tortured to death as it is being speculated in some online media.JAMB Portal

“Torture is strictly against our protocols and principles. Ogun state police command is well versed in the legal framework that safeguards the rights of individuals in custody, free from all forms of cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment.”

Odutola was, however, silent on the N200,000 bribe allegation.
