A 37-year-old councilor representing Ado Ward 9 at Ado Local Government Council, Deji Akeredolu, was killed by unknown gunmen on Friday December 28th. 

According to reports, Akeredolu and his wife were said to have alighted from a motorbike at the junction to their house at about 10pm when the gunmen struck and fired shots at him from the back.

 The victim was among the elected local government officials suspended by Ekiti State House of Assembly a fortnight ago. He was also said to be a personal assistant to the Peoples Democratic Party deputy governorship candidate in the July 21 governorship election in Ekiti State, Deji Ogunsakin

An eyewitness who witnessed the moment Akeredolu was killed, said 

“After the gunshots, the first thing we noticed was that the Camry car that had been parked at the junction sped off recklessly. Next was the shout for help by the wife.

“We rushed to the scene and found the councilor in a pool of his blood. We rushed him to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.”

The deceased was buried on Saturday, December 29th.
