As the #EndSARS and End police brutality protests continue nationwide, actress Mosunmola Oduoye has shared the heartbreaking story of how her younger brother, Olatunbosun Filani, was allegedly murdered by police officers in Abeokuta, Ogun state in 2010.
According to Mosunmola, her brother was only 25 when he was allegedly shot dead by police officers. She recounted how she went from one mortuary to the other in search of his corpse. She stated that many years after the tragic incident, she has no idea what led to her brother being killed.
Posting a photo of her late brother, she wrote
Nigeria failed u in 2010 my sweet brother.
U were 25years old then.
Officers from eleweran/obantoko abeokuta killed u on Friday evening, but we were notified on Sunday morning. We don’t have the full details of what happened or how it happened till date.
We went to both station, but we were treated like criminals, and chased away. I was able to locate ur corpse thru the help of a big area brother back then…. We went to all the mortuarys in abeokuta one after the other tipping them to let me search thru their abandoned corpses by police.
When I found u at ijaiye state hospital u were naked and dead but ur hand was still on ur stomach where u were shot and I could see the bullet hole. I shouted, rolled on the muddy floor, I sat amongst the many corpse and held u my handsome brother before I was dragged away.
They never wanted us to locate ur corpse at all.
But today We Nigerians are saying NO MORE!!!
RIP OLATUBOSUN OLUWATOSIN FILANI.
POLICE KILLED U IN 2010.
