Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency have been accused of drowning a 32-year-old graduate of Law, Dapo Olasore, in the Agboyi, Alapere area of Lagos State. It was gathered that Olasore, aka Omopo , was about boarding a canoe to a neighbouring community to see a relative, when the officials stormed the community in two vans without plate numbers.
However, Olasore, who was by the riverside, was said to have been held by the trousers by the NDLEA men; and in a bid to free himself, fell into the water. According to a boatman, Dayo Seun, who attempted to rescue the victim, the NDLEA officials threatened him with guns, leading to the death of the victim. The victim, it was learnt, joined the National Union of Road Transport Workers in 2014, after he could not get a job. Although the NDLEA spokesperson, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, confirmed that there was a raid on the community by the agency, he denied knowledge that anybody was drowned.
