Hounding of David Oluwale, The

Adapted from the book by Kester Aspden

Oladipo Agboluaje
 
In May 1969, David Oluwale’s body was pulled from the River Aire in Leeds. Eighteen months later, the investigation into his death was to rip apart the Yorkshire police force as two officers were prosecuted for killing the Nigerian immigrant whilst in police custody. The police acts of prejudice and violence brought to light through the investigation shook the population of Leeds, and thirty nine years on, the details of Oluwale’s death still haunt the area.

Oladipo Agboluaje uses carefully selected accounts of David Oluwale’s life to reveal how an optimistic and much loved showman became the tragic victim of police persecution and brutality.
