Ekiti State Governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has called on security agencies in the state to fish out the killers of the All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain, Bunmi Ojo, murdered Friday night at Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
Ojo is former governor Segun Oni’s aide. He was murdered at a viewing centre by unknown gunmen.
In a statement issued by his Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wole Olujobi, Fayemi said Ojo’s death shattered the relative peace that had prevailed since the July 14 governorship election in the state.
He said he was shocked by the development and said those found guilty of being responsible for the murder must be dealt with.
Fayemi said: “This is a sad development that should not be allowed to go away without getting to its root.
“But then the public must give security agencies chance to do their job to get to the root of this sad development.
“Also, security agencies are enjoined to swing into action to apprehend the perpetrators of this heinous crime to check the activities of criminals in Ekiti State.”
In a similar vein, the Publicity Secretary of the APC in Ekiti State, Chief Taiwo Olatunbosun, said: “Ojo’s killing cannot be far from political machinations. We will not rest until the assailants are fished out.
“This is a test for the police and other security operatives in the state.”
