N5,000 Transport Allowance For 40 Million Poor Nigerians Mere Rumour - Senate

An associate of the lawmaker representing Ogun West senatorial district, Senator Solomon Adeola, Adeniyi Sanni has been murdered.

Sanni, on Saturday, was stopped at a Lagos checkpoint and had his vehicle documents examined. After updating his wife about the situation, he became unreachable.

Hours later, Sanni was found deceased, exhibiting gunshot wounds.

Senator Adeola’s Media Adviser, Chief Kayode Odunaro, verified the unfortunate event in an official statement.

He said, “Information available to the bereaved Senator in Abuja indicates that Mr Sanni was stopped at a checking point around Berger Area of Lagos on his way to his home at Isheri by security agents.

“He was asked to provide the documents of the car he was driving, which he did through his wife who sent all the documents to his phone WhatsApp

“It was gathered that the wife called a while later and the late Mr. Sanni told him they were still checking the vehicle’s paper. His apprehensive wife later called on Mr Sanni’s associates to say he could no longer reach her husband on the phone necessitating the mobilization of a search party.

“She was later called by passersby through the Next of Kin phone number on her husband’s driver’s license that the body of Mr Sanni was dumped around a Toyota Bus Stop in Oshodi with a gunshot wound.

“Senator Adeola who is involved in the ongoing ministerial screening at the Senate is shocked beyond words and devastated by the news of this sad incident, as Mr. Sanni was his close aide for over two decades. The Nigeria Police Force are investigating the killing.”
