Sources disclosed that the gunmen, about five of them, shot the accountant dead at Kuto bridge in Abeokuta and went away with the government’s money.
It was gathered that Oyekanmi and other aides who sustained gunshot injuries during the attacks, were rushed to the State General Hospital, Ijaye, where the accountant later died.
Late Oyekanmi has since been buried at his hometown in Ifonyintedo in the Ipokia Local Government Area of Ogun last Thursday, November 30, 2023.
