Security personnel is pursuing Rasheed, a welder by trade, for allegedly being responsible for the deaths of numerous residents of the Ede hamlet.
Hassan Adedeji, a Higher National Diploma graduate in banking and finance from Federal Polytechnic, Ede, who was awaiting his call-up letter, and an Okada rider, whose identity was not made public, were both allegedly killed as a result of “Rasidi Baale Oko’lu.”
The Osun State Police Command subsequently issued a wanted notice for him, stating that anyone harboring him would also be punished as a criminal.
