Two members of the Vigilante Service of Ogun State (VSO), Ismaila Jimoh (aka Bintin) and Hassan Olatunde, have been arrested in connection with the death of a 28-year-old businessman, Tayo Olatunbosun.

Jimoh and Olatunde were said to have apprehended Olatunbosun in the Adiyan area of Ogun State on Saturday for allegedly stealing a hairdryer.

They reportedly beat the businessman with charms and later took him to the Agbado Police Station around 10pm.

It was gathered that the police released Olatunbosun on bail. He was subsequently admitted to a hospital in the community, where he gave up the ghost on Sunday.

In the wake of the death, angry youths, who claimed the victim was returning from a party when he was arrested, took to the street and vandalised the VSO office.

The mob also reportedly set four motorcycles ablaze.

It was learnt that a combined team of operatives of the Agbado division and the Area Command, Sango, was deployed in the area to restore peace.

A resident, Bashiru Irewole, said residents were pained by Olatunbosun’s death, urging the state government to curtail the excesses of the vigilance group.
