SHOCKING! Tax Officials Allegedly Kill Hairdresser In Ondo
When Toyin Ijiyemi woke up on Monday, October 9, 2017, she imagined it would just be another day with its own activities.
She didn't know it would be her last.
Tax officials in Ondo have allegedly killed the 38-year-old hairdresser.
The officials, who are from Akure South Local Government Area of the state allegedly killed Ijiyemi while trying to seize her television set over refusal to pay the radio and television tax.
It was gathered that Ijiyemi fell and hit her head on the floor while struggling to reclaim her TV.
The local government workers were said to have taken the television to their vehicle and left the scene of the incident without attending to the deceased.
It was gathered that the woman died later and her remains have been deposited at the morgue.
An aunt to the deceased, Mojisola Otitilowo, said: “Toyin was at her shop at Bolajoko Street, Oke-Aro area in the state capital around 2pm when the council officials invaded the shop. They were four in number. Three of them disembarked from the vehicle they brought.
“The council officials ask her to pay the rate for her shop. All efforts made by Toyin to appeal to them not to seize her television failed. She did not have money and that was why she begged them that she would come and pay the money the second day.
“They did not accept her plea. One of them removed the television from where it was but Toyin started dragging it with them. She fell down. Despite that she fell down, the council officials went away with the television.
“A woman, who came to buy sachet water, discovered that Toyin was unconscious where she laid on the floor of the shop and raised an alarm which attracted neighbors who rushed in and started pouring water on Toyin to revive her.
“When it was realized that Toyin had given up the ghost, the matter was reported at the B Division Police station, Oke-Aro.”
The local government tax officials were later arrested by the police.
