Less than 24-hours after the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde defended the operatives of the State security network codenamed Amotekun, the state police command has indicted the local security outfit of killing another 21-year-old student, Tosin Thomas.
The state Police Public Relations officer, Olugbenga Fadeyi confirmed this to Daily Trust in a statement in Ibadan on Thursday morning.

The victim was allegedly killed inside a Total filling station at Mokola roundabout on Wednesday evening.
Daily Trust gathered that on Wednesday evening, two young men were having misunderstanding which led to one of them inviting men of Amotekun to the venue.
The source said when the men of Amotekun got to the venue, they did not engage the warring parties before one of them opened fire that hit the young man.
Daily Trust further learnt that the victim was rushed to the University Teaching Hospital where he later died on Thursday morning.
Eyewitness told our correspondent that the incident created tension in the community which made shop owners to close their businesses for the day.
