Buried In ijebu -Ode

folahanThe head of operations of the anti-robbery squad of the Ogun State Police Command, Folahan Ogunkoya, at the weekend died in a mysterious ghastly auto crash.

The accident occurred at Asu Village along Sagamu/Abeokuta Expressway in Abeokuta at about 4.00 p.m. on Saturday shortly after he finished watching a football match.

The 41-year-old Superintendent of Police was driving to Ijebu-Ode in his Honda Accord (EOD) car with registration number Lagos MZ 717 AAA, when he reportedly lost control of the vehicle, resulting in an explosion.

The victim was also cut into two, witnesses said, with his remains picked by sympathisers in different locations around the scene, before being put together and conveyed to the state hospital mortuary located at Sokenu, Abeokuta.

The nature of the accident has continued to be a major topic of discussion among sympathisers and associates of the deceased, with some claiming the car was bombed while others said it was a spiritual attack.

‘There may be more to this. If you see the body cut into two in half way, while the car cut into three pieces and recovered in different locations at the scene,one must suspect that, it is either he was bombed or a victim of juju from unseen forces due to nature of his job,” a sympathiser told PREMIUM TIMES at the mortuary on Sunday.

Family members were seen on Sunday making arrangements to collect the corpse for burial at his ijebu-Ode hometown in Ogun State.

The Ogun Police spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement confirmed the accident, saying the deceased lost control of the vehicle while driving leading to a crash.

“The Ogun State Police Command has lost one of its gallant officers, Superintendent of Police(SP) Folahan Ogunkoya, the Officer in charge Anti Robbery Team State CID Eleweran Abeokuta Ogun State who died in a fatal motor accident on Saturday 14th September 2013.

“The officer who was driving his Honda Accord (EOD) with Reg No Lagos MZ 717 AAA suddenly lost control and crashed at Asu village along Sagamu/Abeokuta Express way around 4pm on Saturday,” Mr. Adejobi said in a statement.

Mr. Adejobi said the Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Ikemefuna Okoye, commiserates with officers and men of the command, members of the deceased family, friends, and Ogun State residents on the demise of the officer.

The late police officer was born in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, in 1972 to the family of Pa Ogunkoya.

Before his appointment into the Nigeria Police Force as a Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police on May 1, 2000, he attended the then Ogun State University now Olabisi Onabanjo University in Ago Iwoye where he bagged his Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and later his MSc. at Leeds University in the U.K.

He is survived by a wife and three children all said to reside in the U.K
