 Woman Dies In Ogun following F-SARS Raid – Family

Palpably frightened and shocked nonagenarian, Madam Bintu Jinadu, of Lajiga family in Makun – Sagamu, Ogun State, has slumped and died following raid on her home by Operatives of the Federal Special Anti – Robbery Squad (F – SARS) from Abuja.

This was the trigger of a protest by hundreds of women and men who marched to the Palace of the Ewusi of Makun, Sagamu, Oba Timothy Akinsanya, last Saturday, alleging that Bintu Jinadu died of shock shortly after Operatives of the F – SARS from Abuja stormed her home in a commando style, and whisked the son, Abdul Rahman Abdul Kabir, away on the order of a suspected land grabber.

The nonagenarian was said to have slumped in shock after watching the brutal manner her son was whisked away a week and died days later.

Two other men – Chief Idowu Sanya and Dauda Owolabi, were also taken away from the town along with Abdul – Rahman.

Some of their placards read: “Amosun Save from landgrabbers, ” “We Say No to Land Grabbing and Sir Kay Oluwo”; “Killing a Ninety Year Old Mother is a Sacrilege”, “Land Grabbers are Terrorists. Save us Now.”

The peaceful protest which took off from the Awolowo Market, Sagamu, terminated at the Palace of the Ewusi, Oba Akinsanya.

Their leader, Jamiu Lajiga, who addressed reporters, declared that the “Makun – Sagamu people, are tired of the nefarious activities of land grabbers” within their territories.

Jamiu alleged that “many of the notorious land grabbers evicted from Lagos State has, for long, relocated to the Remo towns and villages where they have been terrorizing us forcefully dispossess us of our family lands.”

He accused a suspected land grabber popularly referred to as Sir Kay Oluwo, of being responsible for their plights and subsequent death of the 90 years old woman.

“He is a pain in the neck of the entire people of Makun Sagamu towns and villages,” he said.

Addressing the crowd, Oba Timothy Akinsanya, sympathized with the victims of what he called “an abominable brutalization of innocent land owners by land grabbers.”

The monarch urged the protesters to remain peaceful and return to their respective homes and works, while promising to take up the issue earnestly.
