The National Association of Seadogs, NAS Abeokuta Chapter has expressed profound dismay over the shocking killing of Mr Taiwo Oyekanmi, the Director of Finance and Account attached to the office of Governor Dapo Abiodun, at Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.
The NAS received reports indicating that Mr Oyekanmi lost his life tragically on the NNPC bridge near Kuto, Abeokuta, while returning to his office from Fidelity Bank, where he had gone for a routine withdrawal.
In response to this, yet another scary incident in the macabre series of murders that have over the years dumbfounded the population, NAS has issued a strong condemnation, fiercely denouncing the act. The association is calling on both the government and security institutions to take swift and decisive action to unravel the circumstances surrounding Mr Oyekanmi’s killing.
In a statement signed by the Capoon, Prince Olubiyi Adegbenga, the group expressed deep condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of the deceased and stressed the need for heightened security measures to safeguard the lives of citizens to prevent further losses of lives.
NAS emphasized the urgency of obtaining justice for the grieving family, urging authorities to address the root cause of such social menace to prevent recurrence. “We demand for a thorough investigation to ensure that those responsible for this heinous act are apprehended and brought to justice, serving as a deterrent to others.”
“A decisive and thorough investigation becomes pertinent because of the obvious but unswered questions raised by the circumstance of the death of this strategic officer.”
“NAS can not come to terms with the fact that the State Government is transacting with and moving such a large amount a hundred million naira plus in CASH while the government harps on cashless policy.”
The organisation also raised suspicion of a foul play on the fact that only the director of finance was killed in the incident.
Therefore, as an organisation with a firm root in justice we hereby join the bereaved family in calling for a thorough probe and justice to bring the criminals behind the cruelty to book as the community mourns the loss of a dedicated public servant.
