Jan 19, 2013 – Taiyelolu Akinyosoye, Ex-Rufus Giwa Poly’s Chief Librarian Assassinated In Akure, Ondo State
A former Chief Librarian of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Ondo State, Mr. Taiyelolu Akinyosoye, whose appointment was terminated in controversial circumstances sometime in 2011, was on Friday murdered at his Akure residence.
Four heavily-armed men were said to have entered the compound of Akinyosoye in Adebowale Estate, off Kilometre 4, Ondo Road, Akure around 4:30 am and killed him.
The assailants were said to have packed his corpse into the booth of his wife’s car and ordered the woman to strip herself and drive them away to an unknown destination.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Wole Ogodo, confirmed the incident.
Ogodo described it as a case of murder but gave the assurance that officers of the Criminal Investigation Department were already investigating the case.
Justina, the wife of the deceased, who works with the Ondo State House of Assembly Service Commission as a secretary, said the gunmen’s intention was to kill her husband.
She said some church worshippers gave her clothes after the killers forced her out of the car and took her husband’s corpse to a nearby bush, off Ondo Road.
Our correspondent learnt that the judgment in the suit initiated by Akinyosoye against the management of RUGIPO was billed to be delivered next week at an Akure High Court.
Residents of the Adebowale Estate were seen lamenting the death of Akinyosoye, who was until his death, the chairman of the residents association in the estate. [source]
