RELEASED BY THE FAMILY OF LATE DR. TUNDE ALADESANMI ON MAY 2, 2016

INTIMIDATION AND DEATH THREAT AGAINST THE FAMILY OF THE DECEASED

The family of late Dr. Tunde Aladesanmi, one of the medical doctors who lost their lives in a ghastly motor accident along Kaduna road while on a national assignment wishes to alert the Inspector-General of the police, Ekiti State Commissioner of Police, the Ekiti State Government, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), the public including the international community of an imminent death/assassination threat to the family of the deceased.

It is pertinent to note that while the deceased was alive, he had a cordial relationship with everyone. Quite a lot of people including his co-workers and professional colleagues can attest to the fact he lived a selfless life, served humanity devotedly; did everything within his power and according to the ethics of his profession to save a lot of lives even at odd times.

It is highly bizarre and unexpected that the family of such a gentle and peace-loving man would receive such threat.

We are particularly concerned about the safety of the family of the deceased and we want to remind the Federal Government, Ekiti State government as well as other other relevant security agencies of their obligations to protect the Nigerian citizens.

We hereby urge the Inspector-General of Police, Ekiti State Commissioners of Police, Ekiti State government and other relevant security agencies to swing into action; ensure that thorough and impartial investigations are carried without fear of reprisal attack.
