A 15-year-old boy has been allegedly killed by an operative of the South-West security network codenamed Amotekun in the Mokola area of the Ibadan North Local Government Area in Oyo State.
The ugly incident which took place on Wednesday has thrown members of the community into confusion.
The victim was said to be preparing to sit for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination on Friday.
It was also gathered that men of the Nigerian Police Force had tried to take the corpse away but they were stopped by the people.
A source said, “The 15 years old boy had been preparing for his exams on Friday and was shot at by an Amotekun man in the early hours of today (Wednesday) at Mokola, Ibadan North, Oyo State.
“The police tried to take the body away but the people refused with force. People are crying. A woman said she ate with him last night as he was preparing for the exams.

A resident of the area who confirmed the incident said hoodlums had blocked some of the roads leading to the area.
He said, “We woke up this morning to see hoodlums taking over our area. It started from the Celestial Church at the Mokola roundabout. But as of 8am this morning, the police have chased them away.
