Police Kill Motorcycle Rider Over N50 Bribe In Oyo
Police officers in Oyo State beat a motorcycle rider identified as Biola to death at Born Photo area of Ibadan, the state capital.
Information shows that Biola was on his way to the hospital to pick his wife when he was killed for refusing to pay the policemen a bribe of N50. A witness, who identified himself simply as Segun, said he was on his way to work when he witnessed the scene. He alleged that policemen in the area daily engaged in the extortion of commercial bus drivers and motorcyclists popularly called Okada.
“The officers stopped the deceased and were trying to extort money from him but he did not give them because he was rushing to the hospital to pick his wife. “The officers insisted that he must give them money and weren’t listening to anything he was saying. Next thing we knew, one of them went to his side, hit him with his gun. Not satisfied, others joined and he was beaten mercilessly until he died,” the witness said.

PDP slams APC for justifying suffering of Nigerians under Buhari
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said the attempt by the All Progressives Congress, APC, to rationalize the excruciating hardship being suffered by Nigerians under the Buhari administration has further given the party out as an insensitive group of people.
The PDP also chided the ruling party for supporting the increase in the price of fuel from N87 to the current N148 per litre as well as “the endemic corruption in the Buhari administration,” saying that “only a corrupt party that relishes in inflicting suffering, pain and anguish can defend the actions of Buhari administration.”
In a statement issued by spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP noted that by kicking against its solidarity with Nigerians in “our caution to President Muhammadu Buhari against making empty promises to the people, the APC has pitched itself against the Nigerians and further confirmed that it is a propaganda machine that only thrives in lies, deception, fake promises and incurable corruption.”
