Police Involvement In DaGrin's Death Uncovered By Sahara Reporters
The circumstances which led to the death of DaGrin in 2010 have now been revealed to be part of a disturbing pattern of illegal activity by police at Alakara Station in Mushin.
The eyewitnesses, who said they were first to reach the scene of the road crash to assist, insist that Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun also known as "Dagrin" did not drunkenly crash into a truck parked at the side of the road as put out by police.
Instead, the truck driver had been stopped in the middle of the road by Police who were demanding bribes. Unfortunately, the truck had no back lights and the late musician had plowed into it unknowingly.
They said the policemen deliberately covered-up their role in the accident, by recreating an artificial accident scene by the side of the road for the world to see the next morning.
A young witness, a man, agreed to speak with SaharaReporters on the condition of anonymity.
"I was there that night, and we did not even know at first that it was anyone (famous) like that. We were only helping to remove his body and to rescue him. What actually happened that night was that the policemen had stopped the cement truck at the middle of road, and of course, they could only be asking for a bribe.
Unfortunately, the truck had no rear light, (of any kind,) and so the oncoming car was unaware of any vehicle ahead. It just rammed head on, into it from the back. It rammed into the truck hard without holding the brakes at all, and that is because the truck in its front, had no light to show anything was there."
"So after we removed the body, we realized it was Da Grin, and he was groaning. They asked the truck driver to move forward and park out off of the road. They then moved Da Grin's car afterwards so it would then look like he went to hit the truck where it parked.
"We were not thinking about all these as an attempt to change the story. We were only concerned about helping the victim of an accident, and by when they finished their artificial story, the world was only waiting for Da Grin's recovery. But news broke later that he had died at the hospital.
"What made their story work was that the car did not hold its breaks, so there was no sign of screeching on the ground. Otherwise, the marks of friction from the tyres would be in the spot where it was removed, before parking it, and rearranging the scene.
"They did everything very fast, and by morning, they were no longer the cause of the accident.) Just like on Tuesday night, that they scared everyone away, and washed the blood stains of their victim within a brief period," the young man continued.
"Of course, they caused the accident that killed Da Grin. And that is how they commit so much atrocities here in Mushin that the public will not know about, or what the truth is. We live here and we see them live, every time. "
Another killing allegedly by policemen at the Alakara Police Station occurred on Tuesday night of this week, further triggering their grief, and provoked them to expose that police atrocity, and approach SaharaReporters.
That killing, as well, was covered up say the sources, in order that residents in the community, and people outside, would not know of it.
The Alakara policemen are described as very apt, and swift, in immediately ‘cleaning up’ their dirty business, leaving behind little, to no evidence, of their atrocities, several sources have told a SaharaReporters correspondent.
