Suspected armed robbers on late Wednesday evening attacked and killed the Chief Security Officer of the convoy of Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Mr. Idowu Oyewole, at his resident in Akure, the Ondo State capital, we gathered.
The criminals numbering about three shot Oyewole who is a Deputy Superintendent of Police in his house located at Akure -Owo road, with members of his family. The man’s son, Dare said his father was eating when the gummen entered into their house at about 7pm .
Narrating how the incident happened, Dare said his father was informed by one of the neighbours of the arrival of the bandits. He said his father brought out his service pistol and followed the neighbour to his apartment in order to send away the suspected hoodlums.
He said the suspected robbers, on noticing his father coming exchanged gunshots with him, but the officer sustained injury and ran for his live.
He was not seen until Thursday morning when they found his lifeless body on the ground. He was said to have died as a result of the gunshot injury he sustained in the night.
Another resident further told our reporters that after attacking Oyewole, the suspected robbers came to another person’s house in the area and took the person’s four-year-old boy hostage and told the mother to open the door, saying they would kill the boy if she refused to open the door.
He said after waiting at the door and moving around the premises with the boy for about 30 minutes without gaining access to the house, the hoodlums angrily hit the boy’s head with machete, injuring him.
When contacted the Police Public Relation Officer of the state police command, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the killing and said the command had begun investigation into the matter.p
