“My deep condolences also go out to Speaker Dogara, his colleagues in the House of Representatives, the Action Democratic Party (ADP) and Oyo State government over this great loss. I pray for the repose of the soul of the deceased, and for God to comfort those he left behind” Olamiju said.
Hon. Olamiju condemned in the strongest terms, the “crude and senseless manner of the attack leading to the death of the federal lawmaker, and called on the relevant security agencies “to ensure that the perpetrators of this dastardly act are apprehended and brought to book”.
