Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has offered N5 million to anyone with credible information on the men responsible for Hon. Gideon Aremu’s death.

Hon. Aremu, an Oyo state lawmaker, was murdered after gunmen allegedly trailed the lawmaker to his residence in Egbeda local government area of the state before firing several bullets into his body.

According to Ajimobi, the death of Aremu shattered the calmness Oyo state had enjoyed in the past five years, hence he is prepared to reward anybody with clues that would assist the police to apprehend the culprits and their sponsors.

This was disclosed in a statement made available by Yomi Layinka, the special adviser to the governor on communication and strategy, on Thursday, July 7.

Ajimobi said: “This is to further demonstrate the government’s commitment to the ongoing investigation of the immediate and remote causes of the murder of the parliamentarian who was allegedly gunned down in front of his home in Alakia, Ibadan.

“The governor, once again, wishes to reiterate his administration’s relentless pursuit and defence of the security of lives and properties of all citizens of Oyo state, without let or hindrance.

“The government wishes to assure such volunteers of absolute secrecy, confidentiality and protection of the law. Please, help to find those behind the murder of Hon. Gideon Aremu so that he and his family can get justice, and on time too.”

Governor Ajimobi appealed to members of the public in possession of any useful information to immediately contact the following telephone numbers: 0802 343 1079, 0803 653 6581, with assurances that such tips would be treated in the utmost confidence.
