The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ekiti state chapter has reacted to the murder of one of the party chieftain, Bunmi Ojo by some unknown gunmen at a viewing centre in Ado, the stat capital
The party in a statement signed by its publicity secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, lamented the loss, describing it as a “brutish end to a blossoming life and career”.
“Those who knew Bunmi (Ojo) cannot but liked him, he was an easy-going and upright politician who cultivated friendship in both high and low places, which endeared him to many people,” he said.
The statement said his killing could not be far from “political machinations” and said the assailants were tools of a devilish politician in the state.
“We will not rest until the assailants are fished out. This is a test of efficiency for the police and other security operatives,” Olatunbosun said.
The party blamed the Ayo Fayose-led state government for the insecurity in the state.
“Let it be known that the present state government is not free from all the insecurities pervading our state and will be held responsible as the mastermind. We deserve an explanation as to why Bunmi Ojo should be killed without provoking anyone,” he said.
