Through "The Hounding of David Oluwale," an adaptation of Kester
Aspden's critically acclaimed text, Agboluaje uses carefully
selected accounts of Oluwale's life to reveal how an optimistic and
much loved showman who loved to dance, became the tragic victim of
police persecution and brutality.
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 whist in police
custody. The police acts of prejudice and violence brought to light
through the investigation of 1971 shook the population of Leeds,
and thirty nine years on, the details of Oluwale's death still
haunt the area.
