A 24-year-old 200-level Material Science Engineering student at the Kwara State University, Oluwadara Adedayo, is lying critically ill in the hospital after sustaining serious injuries while running away from armed policemen attached to the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the Lagos State Police Command.

Adedayo who spoke to Punch, said he was in Lagos undergoing his Industrial training when he was accosted by some policeman at Cele bus stop as he was heading towards the Yaba area of the state last Monday. They searched his phone and also his modem and found nothing incriminating. Instead of letting him go, they ordered him into their vehicle. He resisted and ran away from them. While they were pursuing him, he jumped off a bridge and sustained serious injuries.

“They ordered me to enter the bus they brought and I refused. I demanded to know what I did to warrant me entering their bus but they did not say anything, only for them to bundle me inside the bus. I saw an opportunity to escape from the bus and I did. I jumped out of the bus because of my past experience with policemen. A few months ago, some policemen accosted me at Durba (Lagos) and accused me of being an Internet fraudster without any evidence against me. They took me to First Avenue, FESTAC Town, and collected the only N2,000 on me before I was released. I suffered before I got home that day.”

Adedayo stated that once he jumped down from the bus, he crossed to the other side of the road and ran to the Cele-Okota Bridge. One of the police officers armed with a gun, chased him on a motorcycle.

“When I stopped. The policeman quickly parked his motorcycle and pointed his gun at me, threatening to shoot me. Out of fear, I jumped off the bridge.” he said

Accordng to him, the police officers took to their heels when they discovered he was unconcious. Passersby rushed him to the General hospital, Isolo for treatment.

“I was then rushed to the General Hospital, Isolo, from where I was transferred to the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi. I have not reported the incident in any police station because have just been discharged from the hospital,” he said

I dedicate this award to my 2 daughters, it’s been a very rough year for me, but you both have been very understanding, smart and compassionate.

For all the times you said “Mom, we understand”, “Mom, it’s okay”, and just really showing I’m not alone in this “lone” journey, Thank you, my Angels. I pray you make better choices in life. 

I put in so much work because I  want to make a difference in the world,  but above all I want you to have a good legacy you can be proud to identify with when you grow up and choose your life path.

You both are the highlight of my existence as a human being, for all the times I have been rejected, humiliated and turned down, having you in my life has changed how I see myself. 

Because of you my girls, I wake up every day, and I have that innate belief that it’s going to be a good day. 

Dear Mom, you made the right choice bringing me to the world against all odds and I love you with every fiber of my being. Thanks for not giving up on me. 

Thank you, Jesus, for this, that and everything.
