A Transport Union Member, Jelili Jimoh has been reportedly slumped and died after he was allegedly slapped an Okada rider because of N100 ticket fee.
Jimoh who until his death lived at Agbado area, Ogun State met his death after he aggressively slapped a motorcyclist, Ezekiel Amosu for refusing to pay extra amount apart from the daily N100 ticket fee.
Account of an eyeswitness revealed that Amosu on Monday picked a passenger going to Beshi bus stop in Agbado from Dalemo, a neighbouring community.
Some distance to the destination, the deceased, (Jimoh) was said to have to have stopped him and requested him to pay ticket fee for the day.
The rider reportedly gave Jimoh N100 which he rejected it, saying the sum was small. While the haggling went on, the collector reportedly slapped Amosu and detained his motorcycle, insisting that he should add to the N100.
As Amosu was begging to be freed, he received another slap from Jimoh, who started fidgeting afterwards.
Jimoh was said to have slumped where he was sitting in a secluded place and was rushed to the hospital before he was later pronounced dead.
Confirming the incident, The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, expressed shock, saying that the case of the death is beyond human understanding.
He said, “It is true. He slapped the okadarider twice. He slumped two minutes after and died. The rider did not touch him and many eyewitnesses testified at the police station. It was recorded as a case of sudden and unnatural death so arresting the rider will be a miscarriage of justice.”
