Unknown gunmen on Wednesday killed a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Alhaji Babatunde Oreitan.
Sources said Oreitan, who is one of the leaders of the party in Ona Ara local government, was murdered in his home located at Oremeji Agugu area of Ibadan.
Naija News gathered that the APC chieftain was assassinated after Dhur prayer in a mosque located in his house.
The Oyo State Police Command is yet to comment on the murder of Babatunde Oreitan.
In a post on social media, a Deputy National Youth Leader of the APC and former Special Adviser to ex-Governor Abiola Ajimobi on Youths and Students Matters, Afeez Mobolaji Repete, described the deceased as a devout Muslim.
He said: “The leader of APC in Ona Ara LG, Alhaji Babatunde Oreitan is murdered.
“Alhaji Babatunde Oreitan, you were a principled politician, a devoted Muslim and a political leader.
“Those that killed you will never have peace. Rest in peace Baba Gbemisola, Baba Lateef”.
