Nwosu, who did not mention if the two suspects were politicians, however, said they were arrested during the Sallah celebration in different parts of the state.

He disclosed that the suspects had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for investigation.

NAN reports that two gunmen who came on a motorcycle on Thursday evening shot dead Daramola, a chieftain of APC in Ward B in Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area.

It was learnt that the assailants stormed the deceased’s residence at K Close, 3rd Avenue, FESTAC Town and shot him at close range three times.

The suspects allegedly arrived the place at about 5.30 p.m. to perpetrate the dastardly act.

Nwosu said the suspects were first interrogated by the Area E Commander, ACP Frank Mba to ascertain their level of involvement, and from there they were allegedly indicted before being taken to SCID.

    Thank God for the family of this man. I have been praying for the arrest of these killers. After some thorough investigations, if these killers are found guilty, there should be no option of life imprisonment for them, they should be put to death either by hanging or firing squad. Enough is enough we are tired of living like slaves in our mother land. At least the killers also know the consequence of getting caught in their act.

    In addition to what Jilo said, those who sponsored the assassination should be shot as well. Politics in Nigeria is a dirty venture and ‘am sure many people who are honest and have good intentions for the country are afraid to run for office. What a sorry state Nigeria is in.
