Mr. Atansuyi said his Late son was arrested following allegation made against him by his friend that he sold an iPhone he kept with him.

“My son said the phone got lost, but the owner insisted he sold it. When I visited him in the cell Saturday morning, he showed me the injuries inflicted on him by miscreants, before he was handed over to police at Jankara Police Post.

“He told me that the phone actually got lost, but that the torture made him to state otherwise. I agreed to pay the owner N200,000, which he claimed was the cost of the phone.

“Around 3p.m. on Saturday, while I was trying to get him food, I received a call to go and see the Divisional Police Officer, Adeniji Adele Division for a settlement.
“On arrival, I was told to wait for the complainant. While waiting, the DPO took me to the Area Commander’s office at Lion Building, where I was told that my son, Ifedolapo, was dead.

“Police claimed he committed suicide. But he was murdered because he had no reason to commit suicide. As a gospel musician, he had put some lyrics together, which he intended to produce by Easter. Now, they have truncated his vision,” the bereaved father told journalists.
