Unknown gunmen assasinate Ekiti Prince inside hotel

Residents of Oke-Ako in Ekiti State were thrown into mourning on Saturday as some gunmen attacked and killed a prince of the town, Dare Ogunbiyi, in a hotel, Olainukan Hotel.

The hotel, located on Irele-Ekiti Road, Oke-Ako was owned by the deceased. He was a son of the town’s late king, Oba Omotayo Ogunbiyi.

An eyewitness, who gave his name as Dayo, said the gunmen caught the victim unawares while he was discussing with one of the hotel’s workers.

“The two men wore masks. When he (Ogunbiyi) saw the gunmen, he tried to run away but the assailants pursued him and shot him dead. The assailants later escaped into the bush.”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ekiti, Alberto Adeyemi, said he had been informed of the attack but was awaiting briefing from the divisional police officer.
