Sunday Adejumo, the Head of Operations, Security Unit of the University of Lagos has been shot dead by men suspected to be assassins.

Adejumo, 50, was killed by unknown gunmen on Friday night who stormed a drinking joint where he was having a drink with friends and shot him at point blank.

Eyewitnesses say the victim was hit in the chest and shot afterward.

He reportedly died a few minutes later after losing so much blood.

A resident, who did not identify himself, said the owner of the drinking joint had been arrested and was being interrogated at the Bariga Police Station.

He said, “The incident happened around 8:30pm on Friday. We suddenly heard gunshots and we all rushed into our different houses because we did not know what exactly happened.

“It was later we learnt that one of those in the beer parlour was killed.

“It was not a robbery because they did not steal anything or injure anybody else. Immediately they killed him, they left.”

Adejumo’s pay slip, ATM cards and car key were still lying on the table where the victim was shot.

The Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lelma Kolle, confirmed the incident saying the Bariga Police DPO led his men to the scene of the crime on Friday night where they found the deceased in a pool of blood.

Kolle said, “Investigations revealed that the man parked his car a distance away from where he was drinking. The police also discovered that there was a blood stain on the car and the car key was found within the vicinity, also with blood stains. This can only mean that after they killed him, they attempted to go away with his car. They actually succeeded in opening the car because there were blood stains on the car seat. But the car did not move because of the security system in it.

“The owner of the bar has been arrested and he has made statements. We cannot categorically say whether this was a robbery or an assassination plot. The matter is still under investigation.”

His body has been deposited at the Yaba mortuary.
