The Ogun State Government announced on Friday, Dec. 8, that a reward of N50m would be given to anybody who could provide information leading to the arrest of the killers of Mr Taiwo Oyekanmi, the former Director of Finance and Administration attached to Governor Dapo Abiodun’s office, Oke-Mosan Abeokuta.
Oyekanmi, 51, was killed on Wednesday, November 29, by gunmen at the Kuto Flyover Bridge, Abeokuta.
The deceased, alongside two others, were returning to the Governor’s Office with money said to have been withdrawn from two major commercial banks in Abeokuta when they were attacked.
The gunmen made away with the huge sum after killing Oyekanmi.
Governor Dapo Abiodun, who said that the killing of the senior civil servant left his cabinet devastated and traumatised, promised to leave no stone unturned until the killers are brought to justice.
The state government, in a statement on Friday, said that a cash reward of N50m awaits whoever provides information that can help the security agents to unravel killers.
The statement partly reads: “Ogun State Government has announced a reward of N50m for anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the killers of the state’s Director of Finance and Administration, Mr. Taiwo Oyekanmi, on 30th November, 2023 in Abeokuta.
“Information provided would be treated with utmost confidentiality.”
