Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has condoled the Senator representing Ogun West senatorial district, Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, over the killing of his aide, Adeniyi Sanni, on Saturday in Lagos, calling for an immediate and discreet investigation to unravel the assailants and bring them to book.

The governor, in a statement issued by his media office in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Sunday, also sympathized with the family of the deceased, describing the killing as cruel and barbaric, adding that such a heinous act can never go unpunished.

He extolled the virtues of the slain aide while alive, saying his exemplary record of diligence, creativity and loyalty while serving his principal would be sorely missed.

“The cold-blooded murder of Niyi Sanni, one of the closest aides of Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, the Senator representing Ogun West senatorial district on Saturday was bestial, inhuman and barbaric to say the least; it was a very sad development in our polity.

“By his record, the late Sanni was very diligent and loyal, a very responsible and reliable Nigerian, who was cut short in his prime by enemies of humanity.

“On behalf of the government and the good people of Ogun State, I deeply commiserate with Senator Adeola and colleagues of the late aide in the office, as well as family members he left behind. May God in his infinite mercy grant them the necessary strength to bear the irreplaceable loss, as I pray God to rest the soul of the departed.

“I also charge security agencies to quickly move and deploy all their apparatus in intelligence gathering as a matter of exigency to fish out every individual behind the dastardly act and make them face the long arm of law,” the statement read.
