Ogun church killing: Amosun pledges to unmask perpetrators
Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun has said that government will do its best to arrest killers of foremost IjebuIgbo businessman, Chief Adetola Okuneye, who was murdered Sunday during a church service.
Amosun, who made the pledge during a condolence visit to the family of the deceased in Ijebu-Ode, said the perpetrators of the act would not escape judgment.
“The heinous manner with which the life of a good citizen who invested in security was terminated is uncalled for. I don’t know why men of the underworld will terminate the life of a man who could not hurt a fly. They even went as far as carrying out the act in the house of God. This was a man who did his best to ensure security of lives and property. As a government, we will do our best to ensure that the perpetrators of this act are brought to justice’’, Amosun said.
The governor, who was accompanied by the state Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, Director of State Security Service, Mr. S. Charanchi, and members of his cabinet, condoled with the Okuneye family as well as the Christian community and Ijebunorth residents and prayed God to grant the deceased eternal rest.
Son of the deceased, Gbenga Okuneye and bishop, St John’s Anglican Church, Oke-Sopein, Ijebu-Igbo, Rt. Rev. Gbetogo Kuponu in their respective remarks, thanked the governor and security chiefs for their visit and concern.
