A top official of the National Union of Road Transport Workers in Osun State, Rabiu Tajudeen, was on Friday shot dead by gunmen on a motorcycle suspected to be members of a cult group.
It was also learnt that the deceased’s daughter, whose name could not be immediately ascertained, was also hit by a bullet during the attack.
Until his death, Tajudeen, was said to be an official of the Lagos Park branch of the NURTW in Osogbo and was usually seen in company with the chairman of Oroki Branch of the union, Kazeem Oyewale, also known as ‘Asiri Eniba.’
According to an eyewitness, Tajudeen was shot in front of his wife’s shop located around Ilesa Garage by some yet-to-be identified assailants, who tracked him to the area.
The eyewitness who owns a shop around the Ilesa Garage area, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told our correspondent that he was buying soup ingredients by the roadside when three men on a motorcycle arrived at the scene.
