Scores of youths in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State have protested over what they described as recklessness on the part of police, which they said, led to the death of three persons including a community Chief.

The ugly incident happened along Lagos/Benin Expressway on Saturday evening as the aggrieved youths stormed the police station in their hundreds with the aim of setting it ablaze.

The irked protesters, amongst other grievances against the police, thronged the Police Divisional Headquarters in Kajola for killing their indigenes at the police checkpoints in the area.

It was gathered that they dumped the three corpses at the Police Divisional Headquarters, Kajola, chanting series of protest songs to register their grievances.

They also vehemently declared that they do not want to see police in the community again.

The victims, David Olowofeyekun, Gbenga Abayomi and Kola Akinduro, who was the Head of Korede Village, were on a motorcycle and heading home from their farms.

As reported by News Track, spokesperson of the state police command, Funmilayo Odunlami, exonorated his men from the accident.

She said the accident was caused by the driver of the motorcycle who passed through one way.
