The Ogun State Police Command has been ordered to go after the killers of a former Central Bank of Nigeria employee, Kehinde Fatinoye, and his wife, Bukola, who were killed and their house set ablaze on January 1, 2023 by yet-to-be-identified assassins.
Governor Dapo Abiodun gave this order in a statement issued on Wednesday through his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, declaring that the killers who kidnapped the couple’s son and threw him inside the river, would not go unpunished.
He, therefore, urged the police to hunt down the killers and arrest them.
He described the incident as unfortunate and heart-breaking, vowing that his administration would not hesitate to deploy resources with the view of unmasking persons behind the dastard act.
While assuring the people of the state that his administration would continue to do everything to provide adequate security of both lives and property, the governor reiterated that Ogun would not never be a safe haven for criminals.
Part of the statement reads;
“My heart goes out to the families of Kehinde and Bukola Fatinoye. The incident indeed shocked me, as it was unfortunate and tragic. I can imagine the pains the families would be going through at this period when everyone is still basking in euphoria of the New Year.
“This is a grievous crime, no doubt. I have directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure that everything is done in order to arrest the people behind the dastard act. I assure you that the perpetrators will not go unpunished. Such an heinous crime should not go without making the people responsible face the full wrath of the law.
“Though our administration had since strengthened the security architecture in the state, we shall continue to provide logistics to the security agencies in order to make our state the safest to live, work and play. Let me reiterate that no effort will be spared to ensure security of lives and property of our people.”
