Ogun State Government has placed a N50 million bounty on the killers of former director of finance and administration attached to Governor Dapo Abiodun’s office Taiwo Oyekanmi.
Gunmen shot Mr Oyekanmi, 52, dead on November 29 at the Kuto Flyover Bridge, Abeokuta on his return from a bank after withdrawing money for the government’s use. The gunmen also made away with the money.
Governor Abiodun, who said the killing of the senior civil servant left his cabinet devastated and traumatised, promised not to leave any stone unturned until the killers are brought to justice.
In a statement on Friday, the state government said a cash reward of N50 million awaits whoever provides information that can help the security agents to unravel the 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.”
