A 21-year-old student has been allegedly killed by an operative of the Oyo State Security Network, popularly called Amotekun.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Gbenga Fadeyi, confirmed this in a statement in Ibadan on Thursday morning.
It was gathered that the young lady was going home when two “Yahoo boys” were arguing over their girlfriend. One of them reportedly invited Amotekun to put the situation under control.
Reports say that one of the operatives of Amotekun mistakingly shot and killed Tosin Thomas while trying to settle the rift.
It was learnt that the victim was rushed to the university teaching hospital where she later died on Thursday morning.
