Governor Babatunde Fashola

By  Yinka Kolawole       

Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola and  Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State yesterday expressed shock and deep sadness about the brutal killing of Laitan Oyerinde who was private secretary to Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Fashola in a letter of condolence to his Edo State counterpart urged him to “remain strong and focused as he faces the task ahead during this trying times, especially as it is coming barely a week after a road accident involving the governor’s convoy.”

Aregbesola described the midnight murder “as a manifestation of the recent alarm that there is an orchestrated plot to cause violence through killing of certain political office holders in the country.

Aregbesola in a statement by his Director of Communications and Strategy, Mr Semiu Okanlawon said “the dastardly killing of Oyerinde

confirms our fears and suspicion that the “accident” in the convoy of Oshiomhole was a plot to assassinate the governor by the same agents of do-or-die politics who believe that Edo State must be ‘captured’ from the Action Congress of Nigeria come next governorship election.”
