The reflector gathered that the Commandant of the Amotekun corps in Oyo State, Col. Olayinka Olayanju (retd), made this disclosure on Monday.

It could be recalled that on Saturday, a member of the Amotekun corps shot Yekini on his thigh, however, the officer did not die as he was rushed to the hospital.

Narrating what had transpired, Olayanju explained that some Amotekun corps members were invited to join the Police in dismantling a carnival stage which the Police had warned some youths in the area not to put up.

He said in the process, the Amotekun officer’s gun accidentally discharged itself and the bullet hit the policeman in the thigh.

He said, “Amotekun operatives were invited by the police to join hands with them to dismantle a carnival stage. The carnival was held against the earlier warnings to the organisers by the police.”

“The carnival stage was dismantled unchallenged, but after this, the gun with Ogundele Ibrahim discharged accidentally and hit the community police officer in the thigh.”

“Yekini Fatai was rushed to the General Hospital in Oyo town where he was treated and he has been discharged.”

“I want to state categorically here that there was no feud of any kind between Ogundele Ibrahim and Yekini Fatai to warrant shooting him, “he concluded.

He also confirmed that the Amotekun corp whose gun went off accidentally has been handed over to the Police for proper investigation of the incident.
