Read his narration below
My name is James Anthonia from Edo State, On Thursday,17th of August,2023,I and my two friends, Rashidi and Tunde attended the 8th day fidau prayer for Baba Omoh who happened to be the former secretary of the Eriyo family at Baga Eriyo Community area of Ogijo in Ogun state.
Unexpectedly, some boys almost 20 in number stomped the burial Ceremony shooting into the air, this scared away a lot of people.
Unknown to me and Rashidi since the other person left earlier due to his busy schedule, the unsuspecting boys working for Ganiu Lateef aka Ęleda sitting close to us were positioned there to hurt us. We knew them but since we had no issue with them, we had no cause to suspect their hidden motive and meanwhile, Rashidi had earlier told them that there is no need to fight again because peace talks have been held.
Immediately the bikes and gun men who also work for Ęleda arrived, The people sitting next to us, Shola Alagbaja aka SS a VGN officer, and Kazeem Okaka,Sodiq Owo-epo who is from Eriyo, Epo who is wanted by the Police, works for Ęleda, Nuru,Ajenishe Eriyo,Baba Asisa surrounded us. They held me and Rashidi.
One of the gang leader, Shola Alagbaja brought out his own gun and shot Rashidi on his leg, Rashidi fell to the ground, he went ahead to shoot his hand. I had the opportunity to escape when SS Adura brought out his gun.
Due to their concentration on Rashidi, I struggled out of their hand and escaped. I ran inside the bush and while I was there, I overheard Okaka nagging the rest for allowing me to escape.
It was after I escaped they decided to take Rashidi away after beating him mercilessly despite the gun shot wound.
Furthermore, this publication reached out to the PPRO of Ogun state command to confirm the incident but she denied knowing about it.
