Fish out killers of slain journalist, Badejo – Oyo NUJ tells Makinde, security agencies

Oyo state Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) on Sunday charged Governor Seyi Makinde and the security agencies to fish out killers of a journalist, Titus Badejo shot dead on Saturday night in Ibadan.

The union in a statement jointly signed by its state chairman Alhaji Ademola Babalola and Secretary, Comrade Sola Oladapo lamented the increasing spate of insecurity in Oyo state.

According to NUJ, “the spate of senseless killings and avoidable deaths in Oyo state is worrisome and calls for concern of all discerning members of the public.

“We use this opportunity to once again, call on the authorities; the Governor, CP and others to fish out killers of deceased journalist and others mowed down in their primes in recent times”, it said 

Oyo NUJ added, “We mourn the untimely passing and gruesome murder of a journalist whose sad killing took place on Saturday at a Club in Oluyole area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital. A very distinguished OAP, DJ and Sports presenter.  Badejo’s killing is one death too many for us in Oyo NUJ to comprehend.  

“It appears those who have scores to settle with one another, are using the rising insecurity in the State to perpetrate killings of monumental dimension. Under the cover of darkness, the assailants snuffed life out of a bubbling young man and cut short his precious life! What a cruel life?

While praying that the wrath of God descends on them wherever they are hibernating, it stressed that may the assailants never know peace.
