Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has ordered the state police command to hunt down the murderers of a former Nigerian Central Bank employee, Kehinde Fatinoye, and his wife, Bukola, who were killed and their house burned down on January 1. , 2023 by assassins yet to be identified.

Abiodun, in a statement from his chief press secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Wednesday, declared that the murderers who kidnapped the couple’s son and threw him into the river will not go unpunished.

Therefore, he urged the police to hunt down the murderers and arrest them.

He described the incident as unfortunate and heartbreaking, vowing that his administration would not hesitate to deploy resources in order to expose the people behind the dastardly act.

Assuring the people of the state that his administration would continue to do everything possible to provide adequate security for both life and property, the governor reiterated that Ogun would never be a safe haven for criminals.

The governor is quoted as saying in the statement: “My heart goes out to the families of Kehinde and Bukola Fatinoye. The incident really struck me as it was unfortunate and tragic. I can imagine the pains families would be going through in this period when everyone is still enjoying the euphoria of the New Year.

“This is a serious crime, without a doubt. I have directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure that everything possible is done to arrest the people behind the dastardly act. I assure you that the perpetrators will not go unpunished. Such a heinous crime must not happen without those responsible facing the full wrath of the law.

“Although our administration has since strengthened the security architecture in the state, we will continue to provide logistics to law enforcement agencies to make our state the safest in which to live, work, and play. Let me reiterate that no effort will be spared to ensure the safety of the lives and property of our people.”
