Oyinlola’s Lawyer Murdered On Christmas Eve
A statement by Lasisi Olagunju, the Special Adviser (media) and Chief Press Secretary to the governor said yesterday that the PDP lawyer was driven to a village, Igbotele, after he had been abducted by yet-to-be identified persons, who asked him to produce some documents.
The statement added that when he failed to accede to the demand of his assailants, he was reportedly set ablaze, while a rescue team later took him to the state hospital, where he died at about 3pm on Thursday.
In a swift reaction, the leadership of PDP in the state called on the police and other law enforcement agencies to fish out the culprits and bring them to justice.
A statement by the state Chairman of the party, Alhaji Ademola Rasaq, urged the state police command to do a thorough job on the dastardly act, which he said might not be unconnected with dangerous politics.
While commiserating with the family of the deceased, the PDP said it would do everything within the law to get justice in the matter.
The late Ogundere was called to the Bar in 1970.
