Ogun Senator’s aide shot dead in Lagos

Mr Adeniyi Sanni, a senior aide to the senator representing Ogun West in the National Assembly, Solomon Adeola, has been shot dead.

The spokesperson for the senator, Kayode Odunaro, in a statement in Abuja said the incident happened on Saturday morning.

He said the lifeless body of Sanni was found with gunshot wounds dumped at Toyota bus stop in the Oshodi area of Lagos State.

Odunaro said the deceased had earlier called his wife to request the details of his vehicle papers when he was stopped by security operatives at a checkpoint in the Berger area of the state.

According to him, the wife became troubled when he could no longer reach him on the phone after obliging his request.

He added that a passerby later called to inform her of the discovery of her husband’s body.

The statement read: “Information available to the bereaved Senator in Abuja indicates that Mr. Sanni was stopped at a checkpoint 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 were still checking the vehicle’s papers.

“His apprehensive wife later called on Mr. Sanni’s associates to say he could no longer reach her husband on phone necessitating the mobilisation of a search party.

“She was later called by passersby through the Next of Kin phone number on her husband’s driving licence 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 is investigating the killing.”
