Ogun West Senator's Aide Reportedly Killed in Lagos

An aide of  Senator Solomon Adeola, Adeniyi Sanni, was reportedly killed under controversial circumstances in Lagos yesterday.

The senator who revealed this in  a statement by his media adviser, Chief Kayode Odunaro, said, “Information available to the bereaved senator in Abuja indicates that Mr. Sanni was stopped at a check point around Berger Area of Lagos on his way to his home at Isheri by security agents.

“He was asked to provide the documents of the car he was driving, which he did through his wife who sent all the documents to his phone WhatsApp

“It was gathered that the wife called a while later and the late Mr. Sanni told him they are still checking the vehicle’s paper. His apprehensive wife later called on Mr. Sanni’s associates to say he could no longer reach her husband on phone necessitating the mobilization of a search party.

“She was later called by passersby through the Next of Kin phone number on her husband’s driver’s license that the body of Mr. Sanni was dumped around Toyota Bus Stop in Oshodi with gunshot wound.

“Senator Adeola who is involved in the ongoing ministerial screening at the Senate is shocked beyond words and devastated by the news of this sad incident, as Mr. Sanni was his close aide for over two decades. The Nigeria Police Force are investigating the killing.”

As of the time of filing this report, efforts were being made to get confirmation of the tragic incident from the Lagos State Police Command, through its spokesman,  Benjamin Hundeyin .
