The deceased was also said to be the Returning Officer for the party’s primary at Ward 10 in the council area.

It was gathered that the deceased was assassinated on Saturday night around 9 pm in front of his house at Supare Akoko.

When contacted on Sunday, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident, saying the command was aware of it and had begun an investigation.

The PPRO said, “The command is aware of the incident at Supare; investigation is ongoing to unravel all that happened.”
