14-Year-Old Boy Allegedly Tortured To Death By Amotekun Operatives In Ondo


Ayomide Adeghalu, a 14-year-old kid, was allegedly tortured to death by agents of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as the Amotekun Corps.
According to the Daily Trust, the event occurred in the Odojomu neighborhood of Ondo town, Ondo West Local Government neighborhood, at Ogbonkowo.

His stepmother referred him to Amotekun operatives after he failed to account for N500 from the sale of cooked rice he hawked.

According to a source who talked to Daily Trust, “despite entreaties made to the stepmother to release the boy, the teenage boy was subjected to some punishment that lasted for several hours.”

“Later, the woman handed him over to Amotekun Corps officials, who tortured him.” He evolved  too frail and unaware. He was pronounced dead by the doctors on duty by the time he was transported to the Specialists Hospital in Ondo.”

The incident was eventually reported to the Fagun Police Station in Ondo, and the boy’s remains were deposited to the morgue.

Mary, the deceased’s mother, said she divorced his father a few years ago while lamenting her son’s death. She said that she had been notified about the boy’s ill condition by neighbors.

“I was surprised about Ayomide’s death because he was hale and hearty the last time I saw him,” she remarked.

“He never complained to me about any ailment.” It breaks my heart to discover that he was tortured to death by some security officials over the lost N500.”
