CODED-ish News::Murder in Church: Why Cultists Murdered Ogun State Chief During Church Service

11:59 AM

Okuneye, a septugenarian, was said to have just finished reading the Bible lesson when the gun wielding men stormed the church, headed to where Okuneye sat and shot him in the head in the presence of the pastor and members of the congregation.
The deceased may have stepped on the toes of some powerful people who vowed to take his life.
Security sources disclosed that the killing of a cult leader in Ijebu-North, simply identified as ‘Ajango’, in Oru, on March 30, led to the assassination of the septuagenarian one week after.
Okuneye was a furniture maker of 50 years experience who rose to become the Chairman of Cabinet Makers Association in Ijebu North and later Zonal Chairman, Ijebu Division and Vice  Chairman of the association between 1980 and 1990.
It was learnt that after after his retirement from furniture making, he became a community leader and was made the Chairman of lthe ocal security outfit otherwise known as vigilante in Oke-Sopen where he lived. He was also made the leader of the security group for Ijebu-Igbo after which he was promoted to be the overall Chairman of the vigilante in Ijebu North comprising Ijebu-Igbo, Ago-Iwoye among others.
Sources explained that soon after he became the leader of the vigilante in the area, he focused more on University-Olabisi Onabanjo University, (OOU), Ago Iwoye, where he reportedly led an onslaught on cultists.
Sunday Vanguard gathered that when Amosun became governor three years ago, he held meetings with Okuneye over insecurity in the area.
The development led to ‘Operation submit your guns and be pardoned’ in Ijebu North. The governor gave hoodlums, reportedly equipped with guns by politicians during the 2011 elections, an ultimatum to hand over their guns and be pardoned or refuse and be arrested.
At that period, Ijebu-Igbo had become a haven for criminals to the extent that for close to one year, no bank opened to customers because of incessant attacks.
It was learnt that the governor subsequently made the septuagenarian his informant in the axis.
Further investigation revealed that Ijebu-North had been without a paramount ruler since 26 years ago when the last Orimolusi of Ijebu-Igbo joined his ancestors. The other first class Obas in different sections of Ijebu were said to have been concerned about security in their domains only.
