A group of angry drivers are reported to have stripped a Divisional Police Officer attached to the Aramoko Ekiti division over the killing of a fellow colleague.

The late driver, Mr. Omolafe Aderiye, was reportedly killed by armed robbers in Aramoko Ekiti, while travelling to Lagos State.

The drivers had reportedly gotten provoked over the fact that the robbery had taken place close to a police check point without their intervention.

An eyewitness speaking on the DPO’s dilemma said:

“The protesting drivers said the police did not respond swiftly. They stripped the DPO Nak3d and destroyed two police vans.”

The Deputy Governor of Ekiti State was later reported to have called a meeting which he chaired, over the issue.

Also in attendance at the meeting was the Commissioner of police, Mr. Etop James, Director of the Department of State Services, Mr. Duke Fubara, NURTW members as well as other security agency heads.

The Deputy Governor of the State assured everyone gathered at the meeting that the police would deploy more patrol teams within the Aramoko-Ijero and Aramoko-Igede areas.

He went on to add that:

“The police will also investigate the matter thoroughly and bring the perpetrators to book. Our government is concerned because when a life is lost, it gives the impression that Ekiti is not safe.”
