Council Boss Assassinated


The treasurer of Ijebu East Local Government Area in Ogun state, Mr. Tunde Fajengbesi, has been assassinated by unidentified gunmen.

The treasurer of Ijebu East Local Government Area in Ogun state, Mr. Tunde Fajengbesi, has been assassinated by unidentified gunmen.

The body of the slain council staff was found this morning, in a hotel in Shagamu, after the assassins had visited his house at Ogbere. Sources told P.M.News, this morning, that when the gunmen discovered that he had driven to Shagamu, where the presidential election of the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Ogun state chapter, was to take place, they trailed him to the hotel where he was staying.

Fajengbesi was the arrowhead of the delegation that supports one of the candidates, Alhaji Tajudeen Olusesi. Olusesi is the Director of Finance in Ifo Local Government Area. The other candidate, Comrade Ambali Akeem, is the vice president of the Ogun state chapter of the NULGE. Akeem doubles as the current vice president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in Ogun state.

The news of Fajengbesi’s assassination has scared other delegates. This morning, many of the delegates who had come to vote in the election fled their hotels and took refuge either at the Shagamu police station or the Shagamu palace of the Akarigbo of Remo. There were indications, this morning, that the incident would prevent the election from taking place today.
