David Jejelo, a Director of Administration at the Local Government Service Commission in Ekiti State was killed by unknown gunmen before dawn on Monday, September 14, at his residence in the Igirigiri area of Ado Ekiti, the state capital.
A family friend confirmed the news to SaharaReporters, stating that; “The incident occurred between 12:30 am and 1:00 am today and the police have taken his corpse to the morgue. The family is still in shock. It is a big loss for them.”
Police spokesperson in Ekiti State, Sunday Abutu, confirmed the killing when contacted, noting that investigations have already begun.
