According to SaharaReporters, the RRS officers who drove recklessly were chasing suspected fraudsters, also known as Yahoo guys, when they collided with a motorcycle-riding colleague.

The deceased officer, who was assigned to the Odo Ado police station, was said to have died on the spot.

“He actually came home to eat; his wife owns a business in the polytechnic village around Aba Ebira.”

The dead officer came to his wife’s shop to eat because there was a difficult location along the road, alongside the silo, so he came with one of his friends’ motorcycles. He was employed at Odo Ado, which is not far away.

“The RRS operatives were in two Hilux vehicles chasing a Benz. I don’t know where they were chasing the guys from, as they were about to overtake the Benz, the deceased who is popularly known as Baba Ada was coming from the other side and one of the vehicles hit him. He died immediately.”

The Ekiti Police Command spokesperson, Sunday Abutu, is yet to comment on the incident at the time of filing this report.
