    This is nothing but a political assassination of someone who knows too much of the secret dealings of the Ondo state governor over the years as his Chief Security Officer. This is very suspicious murder of an high ranking police officer with such a close tie with the governor of the state. I doubt it if the people and the family of the deceased will ever have the opportunity to know those behind this murder. There is God oo.

      Omokehinde, take it easy ke! The robbers came to opposing house not his, so they(robbers) were not after him. He made wrong move by not calling for backup and if you must confront such situations you must know how many you’re dealing with. A pistol can only carry 10-15 rounds (a good pistol) not shakara type, so how can you outsmart 3-man gang with little round?

    Hi Danti my brother, I guess I was wrong this time around. But our politicians that destroyed our beloved nation can do anything evil to cover their crimes. May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.
