Ondo police investigate killers of Aiyedatiwa’s campaign coordinator

The Ondo State Police Command announced on Sunday that it had initiated an inquiry into the demise of Alaba Abe, a ward campaign coordinator for Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

Funmilayo Odunlami, the Police Public Relations Officer, affirmed the incident, stating that the command was actively investigating the circumstances surrounding his death.

The PPRO said, “The command is aware of the incident at Supare; investigation is ongoing to unravel all that happened.”

The Ondo APC Publicity Secretary, Alex Kalejaiye, described the incident as unfortunate and sad.

“It is very sad and unfortunate that one of our party men was killed but we only read about it on social media. The party can’t make any statement until it is properly briefed by the chairman of the local government of the deceased. We can’t be reacting to social media information,” Kalejaiye said.

The late Abe was among Aiyedatiwa’s campaign coordinators during last Saturday’s All Progressives Congress governorship primary in Ondo State, which Aiyedatiwa won.

Abe, popularly known by his nickname, Excel, was reportedly assassinated by some gunmen in Supare Akoko, Akoko South-West Area of the state on Saturday evening.

This incident happened barely a week after the APC held its governorship primary across the 18 local government areas of the state.
