Police Area Commander killed in road accident

Abolade Oladigbolu, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) in Kwara State, was killed in a car accident.

On Tuesday, Oladigbolu, who was the Area Commander of the Alapa Police Area Command of the State until his death, was hit by a moving vehicle while being carried on a motorcycle in Eyenkorin, a suburb of Ilorin, the state capital.

Okasanmi Ajayi, the spokesman for the State Police Command, confirmed the incident and Oladigbolu’s death.

According to Ajayi, the deceased used the commercial motorcycle on that fateful day because his car was being repaired at a mechanic shop.


Speaking on the death of the police officer, Alh Ibrahim Ajia, a retired police officer, said that the deceased, a member of Course 20/200 had put in more than 22 years in the service of the country.

“I receive with great shock the news of the sudden death of ACP Abolade Oladigbolu who before his death on July 26, 2022, was the Area Commander Alapa Police Area Command of Kwara State.

“The late Assistant Commissioner of Police who was a member of Course 20/2000 has put in more than 22 years in the service of our great country. He served us in Kwara with humility and dedication to his duty as evidence of his death while on active service within his area of jurisdiction.

“I recall my last conversation with him early hours of the same day he lost his life. We both restated our commitment to secure the areas covered by the five divisional headquarters within his area of jurisdiction so as to avert the case of kidnapping which is fast escalating across the country.

“I pray that God Almighty will comfort his immediate family, Amin,” Ajia said.
