Suspected assassins have killed the Head of Operations, Security Unit, University of Lagos, Mr. Sunday Adejumo. The 50-year-old was shot dead at a beer parlour on Oyenuga Street in the Akoka area of Lagos on Friday evening.
On the fateful night was in the joint with three of his friends when some strange faces stormed the pub. They were said to have headed straight for their target where he sat and hit him in the chest, before firing shots at him. The deceased died some minutes later because he could not get help on time. A resident, who did not identify himself, said the owner of the drinking house had been arrested and was being interrogated at the Bariga Police Station.
He said, “The incident happened around 8.30pm on Friday. We suddenly heard gunshots and we all rushed into our different houses because we did not know what exactly happened. It was later we learnt that one of those in the beer parlour was killed. It was not a robbery because they did not steal anything or injure anybody else. Immediately they killed him, they left.”
A source said Adejumo might have been killed by suspected cultists.
