Unknown gunmen have killed a Commissioner in the Kogi State Pension Board, Hon. Adebayo Solomon (Akeweje) on Saturday evening, May 1, along Yagba – Ilorin Road in Kogi State, while other persons were kidnapped by the same attackers.
Solomon’s driver, who also got shot, managed to drive the vehicle to Egbe town before he eventually collapsed. He was still unconscious at press time Saturday night.
LEADERSHIP reports that the corpse of Solomon has been deposited at the ECWA Hospital mortuary in Egbe.
Also, the State Government was yet to react to the development.
Recall that on Monday, a Senator representing Edo Central in the National Assembly, Clifford Ordia, was twice attacked on Okene-Lokoja and Lokoja-Abaji roads by bandits in Kogi State on his way to Abuja from Edo State.
