A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ogbomoso, Engineer Muftau Open Salawu, has called for justice over killing of Jimoh Isiaq during the #Endsars protest in Ogbomoso on Saturday.
Open Salawu who was a 2019 aspirant of the party for Ogbomoso North, Ogbomoso South and Orire federal constituency said the father of the deceased is his brother.
He added that restructuring of police systems is inevitable adding that police are supposed to be friends of the citizens.
Engr Muftau Open Salawu: The Boy killed during the protest at Ogbomoso is my relative.
It is so sad and shocking when I was informed of the death of Isiaka jimoh. This is a promising young vibrant boy that could help and support the family and is life was cut short. Who ever is responsible most be brought to justice. The Father is my brother and we just finished a project together with him in which the Key of the building was handed over to him to tell you how close we are with the family.
Restructuring of policing systems is inevitable now, police are supposed to be friends of the citizens but am not sure that is the case right now. More innocent Nigerians have been killed by reckless police men and this is as result of unprofessional conduct of few officers in uniform.
I want us to be calm and protest peaceful and avoid physical confrontations with men that carry guns in other to avoid lost of life.
The Police need to be restructure to give room for community policing and that is when we can have effective policing in our Country.
