Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has urged the police to fish out and prosecute the killers of the state’s accountant, Taiwo Oyekanmi.
The late Director of Finance and Accounts in the Ogun State Governor’s Office was murdered on Wednesday in Abeokuta by gunmen who hijacked a bullion van conveying the government’s money.
The governor spoke when he paid a condolence visit to the family of Oyekanmi in their Abeokuta residence on Thursday.
Abiodun, while condoling with the family, described the deceased as diligent, hardworking, honest and God-fearing.
He assured the deceased family that everything possible would be done to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The governor pledged that his administration would take full responsibility for the welfare and well-being of the family Oyekanmi left behind.
He also declared one week of mourning and ordered the national flag to be flown at half-mast in honour of the late accountant.
The deceased’s younger brother, Tayo Oyekanmi, said the only thing that will console the family is when the killers are brought to justice.
