Assassins kill consultant while police delay distress caller

The Ondo State Police Command on Wednesday said it commenced investigation into the alleged murder of a consultant, Michael Adesitimi.

Some yet-to-be-identified persons allegedly killed the victim, who was an Information Communication Technology consultant, at his house in the Okuta Elerinla area of Akure, Ondo State.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the incident occurred barely nine months after the deceased’s daughter was killed in a similar circumstance.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, who confirmed the incident, said the command had started investigation.

She disclosed that the police met the man in a pool of blood and assisted him to a hospital, where he was confirmed dead.

Recalling the incident, the eldest son of the deceased, Atinu Adesitimi, said, “My parents were at home that evening when they heard a bang at the gate around 9pm. Under normal circumstances, we were conscious about security after the death of my younger sister.

“My mother, who was watching the scene through the window, said she saw two people who forced themselves into the compound through the gate.

“According to her, their faces were not clearly seen because the place was dark. All she saw was the gun in the hand of one of the men who followed my dad back into the main building, which was a little distance from the gate.

“She overheard the men asking my father, ‘Where is the document?’ My mum ran through the backdoor to our neighbour’s house, where she called policemen.

“The policemen, who were at a checkpoint, rather than follow us to our house to save the situation, they took us back to their station, where they wasted time. By the time my mum and the policemen returned to the house, my father was already dead.”
