Two young men were allegedly shot dead by some Amotekun officers in Ajanla, in Oke-Ado area of Ibadan Southwest Local Government of Oyo State.

It was gathered that the sad incident happened when Amotekun officers allegedly stormed the venue of a party organised to celebrate the eve of Eid-el-kabir and started shooting sporadically without asking anyone any question.

According to Radio Nigeria Ibadan, the deceased persons identified as Abdullahi Ishola and Rashidi Mudashiru including one Alaba Isa (pictured above), who were said to be at the party were hit by stray bullets killing them on the spot while injuring others.

Responding to the allegation, the coordinator of Amotekun in Ibadan Southwest Local government, MSikiru Apanpa said the deceased men and others were allegedly trying to rob a shop at the Liberty Stadium end of Oke-Ado area when the security officers who were on patrol spotted them.

Apanpa explained that on sighting his men, two of the youths alerted others and they immediately started shooting at the officers. According to Apanpa, his men retaliated and two of the youths were gunned down in the process, while the dead and the injured were taken away by the survivors.

Head of the family of one of the deceased, Abdullahi, Alahji Olayiwola Sulu-Ishola has called on the Oyo State government to thoroughly investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.
