Man dies after fight with Osun palace guards

The death of one Suraju Alabi, aka ‘Taka’ after engaging in a fight with some security men attached to the Akire of Ikire’s palace in Ikire, Osun State on Sunday created panic in the town.

Security personnel and men of Amotekun corps, were said to have been deployed in the town after the incident to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

The deceased, it was learnt, was beaten with charms and eventually died while on admission at hospital.

The Police Public Relations Officer for Osun Command, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed death of Alabi.

Opalola said, “One Suraju Alabi had led a gang of the hoodlums to the palace of Akire of Ikire to forcefully release a suspect arrested by the vigilantes attached to the palace.
