A press statement on Friday, by the state’s Police Command made available to Vanguard, indicated that the deceased was knocked down by one Aseoye Adekunle following an initial argument that ensued between them.

The statement said Adekunle became very angry after being overtaken by the deceased while driving in his Lexus SUV with Reg No. EKY 337 EL l, along High Court/Ring road.

Police preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased, who at the time was riding an unregistered Bajaj Boxer Motorcycle dangerously overtook the suspect’s vehicle at a point of negotiation, leading to the initial provocation on the part of the suspect leading to a verbal exchange of insults from both parties.

The case which was earlier transferred to Iyaganku Divisional Police Headquarters on grounds of jurisdictional competence has since been ordered by the Commissioner of Police, CP Adebowale Williams to be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department.

The suspect, according to the Police statement, will be charged in court as soon as investigations are concluded.
