A young man by the name Ayilomo Julius was gunned down by men of the Nigerian Police force while on a peaceful protest about the welfare of their community.
According to is friends on Facebook they wrote: Good Friday turned a bad one here. Son of man fell and pool of tears was inevitably instigated today in my hometown.
My brother, late Ayilumo Julius was an indigene of Igbara Odo Ekiti, a 500level student of FUTA and a youth with a never giving up spirit. He loved me so much and he believed in the future of our hometown. He was shot and killed today by police officers while the officers were trying to halt a peaceful protest staged by Igbara Odo youths.
Bro.your sudden death makes me realise how ephemeral life is. May God have mercy on you and forgive you of your sins, RIP. I love you prince Jul.
We hope the policeman involved would bear the brunt of the law.
