It was a dream cut short. A bungled hope. The brightness in the family of the Opobiyis in Ilorin, Kwara State, suddenly turned into eternal darkness with the killing of their son, Muyideen Mustapha Opobiyi. The young man, whose life may have been on the service lane, finally got it terminated and dispatched out of the earth by some hot lead. Muyideen’s father, Alhaji Mustapha Oke-Odo Opobiyi, in tearful eyes, declared that it was the police that killed his 23-year-old son. Pa Opobiyi narrated how he had been labouring to train his son who just completed his secondary school education about six months ago at Command Day Secondary School, Maitama, Abuja. Whilst waiting for the opportunity to further his studies, he got enrolled at the Da’rul Salam Computer Training Institute of Information and Technology, Ilorin. His joy knew no bounds when the computer training programme finally came to an end on Saturday, the New Year eve. But fate, nay “enemies” , would not allow him revel in his joy and hope of a better tomorrow. Just three days after completing the programme, a flying bullet completed his sojourn here on earth. The police have however denied firing the bullet that killed Muyideen.
