Man Alleges Intimidation, Harassment For Seeking Justice Over Son’s Death


March 26, (THEWILL)- One Mr Tunde Akinfewa has raised the alarm over alleged persistent harassment, intimidation and death threats to him and his family by a bakery factory where his deceased son, Akin Akinfewa, worked.

Akinfemi, in a petition obtained by our correspondent, alleged that his life was in danger having sought justice from the said factory where his son died.

He explained that his 20-year-old son was reportedly electrocuted while working in the bakery at Iba Ojo on June 10, 2021.


According to him, the factory owners, instead of taking responsibility for the death of his son, claimed that the deceased just slumped and died.

He noted that two factory workers: Michael, the Operation Manager and Dele Ilesami, who were present at the scene of the incident, testified that the deceased died of electrocution.

Akinfewa said that ever since the two workers gave their testimonies, he had been receiving a series of intimidations and harassment through phone calls not to take legal action, adding that the two witnesses complained that they were receiving the same.

He called on security agencies to ensure the protection of his life and that of his family members while hoping that the culprits would be brought to book in no distant time.

The petition reads in part, “Mr Akinfewa recently shared a report detailing the ongoing intimidation, harassment, and threats that he and his family have been facing from those responsible for the death of his son in a popular bread company in 2021, located in Iba Ojo.

“Despite his initial decision to withdraw the case, it appears that the perpetrators are unwilling to let the matter rest.

“According to Mr Akinfewa, the individuals involved have been making repeated attempts to intimidate and frustrate him, as well as his family, in order to prevent them from pursuing legal action.

“These tactics have included threatening phone calls, vandalism of property, and even physical confrontations, which they also used in harassing, threatening and beating up Michael and Ilesami who were working for them and were my witnesses to the death of my son, Akin Akinfewa.

“Mr Akinfewa expressed his deep concern for the safety of himself and his loved ones, as well as his frustration with the lack of progress in holding those responsible accountable for their actions. He emphasised the need for justice to be served and for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.”
