Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomole is leaving no stone unturned in his quest for justice. The governor had previously given police a 14-day ultimatum to find the culprits responsible for the assassination of his Principal Secretary, Oyerinde Olaitan, who was shot in his home in Benin City last week.
The governor, who also blamed an “80 year old godfather” for the death of his aide, has now directed the Edo State Police Command to offer a N10 million reward for anyone with useful information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators of the crime.
This was disclosed at the Police Headquarters in Abuja by the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Peter Gana.
“We have opened three telephone lines for the public to assist in the investigations,” he also said, enjoining any members of the public with useful information to get in touch with the police.
The numbers were given as 080178624253, 08158823049, 0814177026, and scheduled to be active from 3 p.m. on Monday.
