The leader of the Western Nigeria Security Network, popularly known as Amotekun, in the Kajola LGA of Oyo State, Tajudeen Salaudeen, has reportedly been killed.

It was gathered that the security agency leader was killed in an accident.

According to Vanguard, Tajudeen was said to have crashed his motorcycle when trying to avoid a pothole on Thursday at Sawmill area, on Ilero Road.

He was reportedly going to Okeho in the early hours of Thursday when he got a call to return for an emergency assignment at Ilero.

While making a U-turn, his bike reportedly skidded off the bad road and he fell off the bike.

His body was first deposited at a private hospital morgue in Ilero, Iwajowa Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Kajola, before he was later buried.

Meanwhile, Gunmen on Friday attacked the residence of the lawmaker representing Gwadabawa/Illela federal constituency, Abdullahi Balarabe Salame.

It was reported that the gunmen attacked his residence in the Bado area of Sokoto around 3 am.

The lawmaker while speaking on the development noted that he killed one of the assailants.

He said, “I was attacked in my house in Sokoto by armed robbers. But by Allah’s powers, I was able to shoot and kill one, and injured some”.

The former Speaker of the Sokoto State House of Assembly also shared photos of the foiled attack.

“They came to destroy him. Allah (SWT) did not give them the opportunity because Allah (SWT) promised to protect anyone who stands for truth and trust.”

“This attack is not the first time. It has been done to the people who stand because society is facing this kind of challenge”, a supporter, Bilal Goronyo wrote on Facebook.
