Man dies after fight with Osun palace guards

Panic arises in Osun State after a man identified as Suraju Alabi died following a disagreement he engaged in with some security men at Akire of Ikire palace.

Security personnel and men of Amotekun corps, were said to have been deployed in the town after the incident to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

The deceased, it was learnt, was beaten with charms and eventually died while on admission at hospital.

The Police Public Relations Officer for Osun Command, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed death of Alabi.

Opalola said, “One Suraju Alabi had led a gang of the hoodlums to the palace of Akire of Ikire to forcefully release a suspect arrested by the vigilantes attached to the palace.

“The rescue mission was resisted by the vigilantes and a fracas ensued. Consequently, both parties sustained bodily injuries and taken to different hospitals for treatment. Suraju later died in the Catholic Hospital, Apomu.”
