Ekiti State Government has condemned the murder of Bunmi Ojo, a former Personal Assistant to ex-Deputy National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Segun Oni.
Ojo was murdered by an unknown gunman at a viewing centre in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti state capital on Friday evening.
The state government therefore charge police and other security agencies to fish out his killers and bring them to justice.
In a statement issued on Saturday, by the Special Assistant to the State Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the government condoled with the families, friends and political associates of the deceased, praying that God in His infinite mercies will console and uphold his wife and children.
“The manner in which Bunmi Ojo, a commissioner in the Federal Character Commission and strong ally of Segun Oni was killed is a demonstration of the extent some devilish people can go to settle scores with their fellow men and the security agencies must not add this gruesome murder to the diary of unresolved murders in Nigeria.
“On the part of the State Government, all necessary assistance will be provided for the security agencies to aide thorough investigation of the murder and arrest of the perpetrators,” the government said.
