How Amotekun Men Allegedly Tortured 14- Year – Old Boy To Death In Ondo

Operatives of the Western Nigeria Security Net- work, code named, Amotekun have been accused of torturing a 14-year old boy to death.

The incident happened in Ondo, Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State
 The deceased identified as Ayo- mide Adegalu, was a student in one of the public secondary schools in the town.
 He was said to be hale and hearty, before he was allegedly killed by the security outfit.
 A source close to the family, said the  boy, was sent to hawk cooked rice by his step mother.
 The source added that upon re- turning from where he had gone to hawk, N500.00 was said to be miss- ing and the step mother called Ayo- mide to ask him if he was the one responsible for the missing money.
The boy denied the allegation saying he was not the one respon- sible for the missing money.
The response of the boy was said to have angered the step mother, and brought out a cane with which she flogged him repeatedly, insisting that he (Ayomide) must account for the missing money.
The teenager was said to have been subjected to other punish ments which lasted for hours, despite entreaties by neighbours to release him.
The step mother later handed the boy to the Amotekun Corps, Ondo town command where he was also subjected to further torture.

The deceased was said to have fallen into coma during interrogation. He was rushed to the Ondo State Specialist Hospital in the town where he was later confirmed dead by the doctors.
A woman, who claimed to be the mother of the deceased, lamented that the news of the condition of the boy was communicated to her, as she had divorced the father of the deceased and was no longer living in the same house with him.
