Gunmen kill commissioner's wife in Ibadan

The wife of a former commissioner, Mrs. Olayemi Odetomi, has been murdered by gunmen in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Mrs. Odetomi was killed in her Akobo home Friday morning. She was the wife of Mr. Peter Odetomi, the former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters during the late governor Abiola Ajimobi’s tenure.

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Mr. Adewale Osifeso, said the deceased was killed in her home.

 “The deceased, Olayemi Odetomi, aged 66 years, died on the spot after being shot during a robbery incident which occurred during the early hours of Friday 25th June, 2021 in her home. Updates on Investigations would be provided in due course,” Osifeso said.
