A Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) staff, Kehinde Fatinoye, alongside his wife were on Sunday murdered by suspected assassins on New Year Day.
It was gathered that the couple were killed and set ablaze by the assailants at their residence in Ibara GRA after returning from the crossover service.
The couple’s son and domestic staff were also reportedly taken away by the assailants.
The wife was said to be a Principal Confidential Secretary at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB).
Ogun State Police Command spokesman, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident, said investigation has commenced.
“Somebody has been arrested in connection with the incident. The man and his wife were killed and we are yet to find their child who was taken away.
“The incident happened after 12 in the morning. This is a clear case of assassination and we are not leaving any stone unturned to unravel those behind the killings,” Oyeyemi said.
