The sheriff released no findings from the investigations into Ajibade’s death, which is still considered an open case as prosecutors weigh possible criminal charges. However, the sheriff’s office did provide a February 9 memo reminding deputies that they were prohibited from using stun guns on detainees already in restraints.
‘Do not utilize any conducted electrical weapon to gain control of a detainee who is in full restraints while in a restraint chair,’ the memo said, noting that detainees with both their hands and feet bound were to be considered fully restrained.
Sheriff’s officials have previously said Ajibade was placed in a restraining chair in an isolation cell after he became combative during booking and injured three deputies. One deputy suffered a concussion and a broken nose, according to the sheriff’s office. Authorities have declined to publicly release the report on Ajibade’s autopsy, citing the open investigation.
The fired deputies include two supervisors — Cpl. Maxine Evans and Cpl. Jason Kenny — who were suspended after Ajibade died. The Associated Press could not find a phone number for either deputy Friday evening.
The sheriff deeply regrets the death of Mr. Ajibade,’ said a statement released by the sheriff’s office Friday. It said new policies implemented since Ajibade’s death include security measures to audit the use of stun guns at the jail as well as booking procedures to ensure jail medical staff are notified immediately when a detainee requiring medication arrives.
