Investigate killing of man wearing cloth with my picture, Folarin urges Police

Sen. Teslim Folarin, the APC Governorship candidate in Oyo State, has called on the Nigeria Police Force to investigate circumstances surrounding the killing of a young man allegedly wearing a cloth with his picture.

Folarin made the call on Sunday in a statement by his Media Aide, Yekeen Olaniyi, in Ibadan.

He was reacting to a video, which has gone viral on the social media in respect of the killing of a young man wearing a cloth tagged with his picture by suspected hoodlums.

Folarin, however, urged the police to investigate and interrogate those behind the video and ensure that justice was served.

He queried the wisdom in wearing someone’s shirt to commit such gruesome killing and terrible crime in Nigeria of today.

“Our attention has been drawn to a video, which has gone viral in the social media, where some hoodlums killed a man wearing cloth with my inscription on him.

“Don’t forget that those of you killing innocent individuals cannot escape the wrath of God, as those killed have their families too,” the APC Governorship candidate said.

Folarin expressed hope that the police would in few days unravel the people behind the killing and the circulation of the video.

He, therefore, urged the good people of the state to be on guard in the next few days to the governorship election.

According to him, our campaign has been so peaceful since we started. We’ve toured the 33 local governments without record of violence.

Meanwhile, the state command of the Nigeria Police has yet to respond to the killing.

Iraqi court sentences former IS leader’s wife to death

An Iraqi court on Wednesday sentenced the wife of the former top leader of the Islamic State (IS) group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to death.

According to Supreme Judicial Council statement, the Karkh Criminal Court issued the death verdict for the wife of the terrorist over joining the IS group and detaining the kidnapped Yazidi women in her house in west Mosul.

In 2019, the U.S. forces conducted a raid targeting al-Baghdadi in Syria’s northern province of Idlib, killing the IS leader.

Al-Baghdadi, whose real name is Ibrahim Awad al-Badri, established the IS in 2014.

The extremist militant group, which once captured large swathes of land in western and northern Iraq, was defeated in late 2017.
