An OPC member is accused of pushing Ondo Prince to death during his funeral in Akure.

Rafiu Akinwale, a member of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), is accused of murdering Akure Prince Adesoji Adesida in Ondo State.

According to Daily Trust, the incident occurred on Friday, April 28, 2023, at a funeral conducted at the Dome in Akure.

Akinwale, who also attended the funeral, was reportedly assaulting his girlfriend after she was accused of swapping phone numbers with another man.

According to reports, Adesida’s attempt to stop Akinwale from hitting the girlfriend did not go down well with the OPC member, who allegedly pushed the prince out of rage. He was reported to have sagged.

According to an eyewitness who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the person was brought to the hospital and pronounced dead.

“However, I’ve learned that the suspect has been apprehended by police officers at Akure’s Ala station,” he continued.

The State Police Command’s spokeswoman, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, confirmed the event and said an investigation was underway.

She also stated that the suspect was still in police custody and was being questioned by detectives.

Prince Stephen Adeyinka Adeyinka, the deceased’s cousin, verified the occurrence in a Facebook post on Monday, May 1, 2023.

“Prince Adesoji Adesida was killed in Akure last Friday during a funeral ceremony by an OPC member Rafiu Akinwale (a.k.a Slow) from Ibadan.” “He was arrested by the DPO of the police in Ala, Akure,” he stated.
