APC laments Comrade Bunmi Ojo's killing, says killers should be nabbed The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State has lamented the gruesome killing of Comrade Bunmi Ojo describing it as a brutish end to a blossoming life and career.
Bunmi Ojo, former Personal Assistant to Engr. Segun Oni and a Commissioner in the Federal Character Commission, Abuja, was shot dead by unknown assailants around Ajitadidun area in Ado Ekiti, where he went to watch a football match late in the evening on Friday 10 August 2018 (yesterday).
In a release by the Publicity Secretary of APC, Rt Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun, the party rued the untimely death of its chieftain and called on the security operatives to fish out the perpetrators without delay.
Olatunbosun described Bunmi Ojo as a personal friend and an amiable personality who would not hurt anyone. He said Ojo's death was a grave personal loss to him and everyone who had been close to him.
"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”, said the APC Publicity Secretary, adding that his cold death could not be far from political machinations and the assailants 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 moaned.
Meanwhile the Ekiti APC has cautioned that the ruling People Democratic Party, PDP in the state, should not make the people of the state suffer further in its hands, adding that the present government would certainly be made to account for all its atrocities, and brought to book for creating an atmosphere of bloodletting in a hitherto peaceful environment.
"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."
While wishing late Ojo could be revived, Olatunbosun called on the federal government not to neglect Ekiti State at this dark moment when the ruling party was still in pain over its loss at the 14 July poll and threatening to have its pound of flesh on innocent citizens by taking away peace from the land.
"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty," Olatunbosun said, while warning everyone to be self-conscious of the state of insecurity the state had been thrown into.
He also prayed that God would give the wife, children and other family members of late Bunmi Ojo the fortitude to bear the loss.
