Fearless Gunmen Murder Septuagenarian During Church Sermon

On Sunday, a septuagenarian Chief Tola Okuneye, a.k.a Ajagajigi, was shot dead during the service at St. John Anglican Church, Oke-Sopen, Ogun state.

About 10 gunmen are said to have arrived in two vehicles, after scouting the church and spotting their target, one of the gunmen walked up to him and shot him dead.

Recounting his version of the attack,an eyewitness who spoke anonymously said, "When the Pastor started his sermon around 11am, about 10 boys came in and went straight to where Ajagajigi sat and shot him on the head. We were shocked and everybody was jittery as the service ended abruptly. Some people, especially, the elderly people, are still in shock as I am talking to you now.

"No one can say anything about his death. He is not a politician. If he were one, we would have thought that his political opponents carried out the act. The church has been deserted, except some few people who were with the Pastor.

There was confusion within and outside the church after the shooting and many were injured in the ensuing stampede.

When contacted, the Ogun State Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the tragic incident, saying investigation had commenced to unravel the reason behind the assassination. Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun also promised that the government would do its best to get Okuneye’s killers.
