It was earlier reported that Badejo was allegedly killed around 9 pm at a popular night club in Oluyole area of Ibadan on Saturday. The deceased was an On-Air Personality, Disc Jockey, and sports presenter.
In the statement, the NUJ chairman charged Governor Seyi Makinde and Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko, to ensure the killers were arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.
Babalola described the killing of Badejo as one murder too many for the union to comprehend. He condemned the recent spate of “senseless and avoidable killings” in Ibadan.
He, therefore, urged major stakeholders to ensure that the security of lives and property in the state received priority attention.
“We mourn the untimely passing on and gruesome murder of a journalist, the statement partly read.
“Under the cover of darkness, the assailants snuffed life out of a bubbling young man and cut short his precious life.
“What a cruel life! May your assailants never know peace, may the wrath of God descend on them wherever they are hibernating,” it added.
