The peaceful ambience prevailing in Oyo State was fouled up on Friday night when a member of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Honourable Gideon Aremu was brutally assassinated.

www.metronaija.com was reliably informed by our source that the assailants who were three in number trailed him on a motorbike otherwise called ‘okada’ to his Alakia, Egbeda Local Government Area of the state.

Recounted our source “they trailed him home around 11 p.m. on Friday night and immediately he got down from his car, they jumped down from their okada and shot him several times. He had money with him, but they did not take the money. They only took his telephone handset and disappeared into thin air.”

We gathered that he had accompanied other Honourable members of the House to the Bodija, Ibadan home of former Governor Adebayo Alao Akala to break fast. We were also told that Governor Abiola Ajimobi was also there to break his fast there.

After being shot, Hon Gideon, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress,APC, who represented Oorelope State Constituency was taken to the nearby Toun Hospital on Iwo Road, Ibadan, where he was confirmed dead.

We contacted Hon Fatai Adesina, one of his colleagues who also confirmed the story to www.metronaija.com

Honourable Aremu, before his untimely demise was the Chairman, Oyo State House of Assembly’s Committee on Information, Public Relations and Security.

When contacted, Oyo State Police Command’s spokesman, Mr Adekunle Ajisebutu also confirmed the story.

His words “It is true that the Honourable Gentleman was killed. It is a suspected case of murder. The Commissioner of Police in charge of Oyo State Command, CP Leye Oyebade has ordered as discreet investigation into the matter. The culprits will be arrested. We assure all residents of Oyo State that we will get the culprits arrested”.

However, stay with this platform for update on this tragic story.

It's now a very risky thing to be a politician in Nigeria, besides being an insanely easy profit making venture.

People got no chills for politicians nowadays. One wonders who this poor soul offended for them to have assassinated him in this dastardly manner.
