Bunmi Ojo, an aide to former governor of Ekiti state, Segun Oni, has been shot dead. He was reportedly shot dead in Ado-Ekiti, around 8:30pm on Friday.
A source said “he was trailed to a viewing centre along Adebayo road, here in Ado-Ekiti. The match between Leicester and Manchester United was ongoing then. Immediately they identified him, his killers opened fire on him.”
The vehicle which the assailants brought was parked in front of the viewing centre. They sped off after confirming that he had died, a witness said.
The deceased served as personal assistant to Oni when he was governor of the state between 2007 and 2010.
He was also actively involved in Oni’s failed bid to return as governor in the election held last month.
