O-Ambulance GM Beaten To Coma By Amitolu’s Amotekun Body Guards
Osun Amotekun in an attempt to forcefully take over an office allocated to O-Ambulance staff assumed a dangerous dimension on Monday as the DG, Amitolu Shittu led his men to seriously assault Dr Olusegun Babatunde, the General Manager of O-Ambulance.
DOCPETINFO gathered that Mr Amitolu Shittu whose appointment is still a subject of ccontroversy, has been terrorising people, most especially those with dissenting voice to his appointment in the state. Recall, Osun State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) has condemned the nomination of Amitolu being a member of the ruling party, APC in the State.
The opposition party had also threatened legal action over what it termed illegal appointment of Mr Amitolu Shittu as Director General of the security outfit, saying, such appointment was unknown to law.
It was gathered that Amitolu has not hidden his desperation to take over the O-Ambulance office located inside the Government House Annex, Osogbo, when the government has already allocated and furnished part of Olajokun park at Gbongan, in Ayedaade local government area of the State as operational office for the security outfit. The location of the operational office was also deemed appropriate in many quarters considering it’s proximity to crime flash points in the state.
Investigation revealed yesterday night that, Amitolu Shittu led his men to government house annex to forcefully eject occupants of O-Ambulance office with a view to taking over the office but met stiff resistance by the latter. The O-Ambulance General Manager, who was around in his office at the time was then attacked by Amitolu’s Amotekun body guards, beating him to comma in the process, his cloth torn into pieces and was left in the pool of his blood.
Attempt to speak with the general manager proved abortive, as he said not to be disposed to speaking to the media, that the state government is already handling the matter.
