 Adikwu, an ex-police officer, arrested alongside three others including the Chief of Staff to Kwara State governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, died in police custody sparking suggestion in some quarters that the suspect was killed by the police.

Akinnibosun, the first accused who until his arrest for the crime, was an aide of Senator Rafiu Ibrahim, the Senator representing Kwara South has however, confirmed the rumour to the court in a trial within trial held on Friday.

“During one of their encounters at the police IRT ‘theatre room,’ they said in their presence Inspector Vincent allegedly shot dead five Fulani men. ‘The theatre room,’ according to them is the generator room of the IRT’s office and it also doubles as where suspects are extra-judicially executed.

“They added that it was in the same ‘theatre room that Inspector Vincent otherwise known as ‘Mr. Torture,’ allegedly shot dead Michael Adikwu for failing to indict them in the robbery incident,” Akinnnibosun, Ibikunle Ogunleye (2nd accused person) and Adeola Abraham (3rd accused person) were quoted by Vanguard as telling the court.
