Department of State Services (DSS) said it is collaborating with the Osun state Police Command to probe the killing of Cpl. Rauf Fawale.

Fawale was beaten to death by three DSS operatives, one of whom was identified as David Olowoporoku.

The Osun police commissioner, Mr Olawale Olokode, has demanded from DSS to produce the killer officers.

But in a statement Tuesday, DSS spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya said the agency and the Police are jointly investigating the matter.

“The public should be rest assured that it will not condone any acts of indiscipline or injustice.

“It therefore calls on the media and other stakeholders to exercise patience and await the outcome of the investigations”, Afunanya said.

Osun Police Spokesperson, DSP Yemisi Opalola, said that CP Olokode met with the Director of DSS in Osun and demanded that those responsible for beating Fawale to death, should be produced for prosecution.

Opalola, in a statement, said that Cpl. Rauf Fawale was working at Dada Estate Police Station in Osogbo.

“We heard that he was beaten by three personnel of DSS on Saturday.

“He was reportedly beaten by one David Olowoporoku and two others.

“The names of the two others have yet to be known but we know of that of David Olowoporoku.

“They beat him and he was rushed to a hospital after someone informed his divisional police officer.

“He had a head injury so much so that even when he was taken to the hospital, they thought he was dead”.
