A chieftain of the National Union of Road Transport Workers in Isokan local government area in Osun State, Kazeem Alli, has been killed by some yet-to-be-identified assailants.
Alli, also said to be a leader of the All Progressives Congress in his local government, was reportedly shot dead by the assailants in Apomu on Saturday evening.
The assailants were said to have trailed Alli, who was said to be traveling in his car to Oka Alfa area where he was shot dead by gunmen travelling in two vehicles.
Osun police Command spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, could not be reached for confirmation of the incident.
But the Media Adviser to Osun APC chairman, Kola Olabisi, while confirming the incident in a statement obtained in Osogbo, condemned the murder of the party chieftain.
The statement which said the “APC chairman, Gboyega Famodun, was apparently disturbed, stated that the killing of the 48-year-old APC chieftain, Kazeem Alli popularly known as Kekere Pasuma, from Ward 6 who performed actively during the last governorship election, was wicked, callous and highly condemnable.
“It was gathered that some gunmen allegedly sponsored by some stalwarts of the Peoples Democratic Party on Saturday killed the APC chieftain.”
