Gunmen have killed Solomon Adebayo, the Kogi State Pensions Commissioner while traveling along the road in Kogi State.
The Kogi State Police Command also said it has commenced search for the whereabouts of the Chairman, Yagba West Local Government Area of the state, Mr Pius Kolawole, who was in the same car with the late Pension Board Commissioner, Mr. Adebayo.
The police said an investigation would be carried out to track and arrest those behind the deadly assault.
It was however unclear whether the attackers made away with any of the victims’ belongings.
The killing of Adebayo, Akeweje of Eri Land in Kogi, was being mourned across the state as the news trickled out overnight.
Reading the communique to newsmen, the national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, decried the current security situation in the country.
According to the PDP, the security of lives and property is becoming practically non-existent as Nigeria descends into anarchy.
“Terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling, rape, arson, mindless murder of citizens and even security agents are ravaging the land. Criminals have taken complete control of most aspects of our lives unchecked,” secondus said. (Cityvoice)
