Suspected assassins, on Thursday, shot dead the son of a retired Army General and one-time military administrator (Milad) of Ondo State, Brig-Gen. Opaleye (rtd).
The deceased, identified as one Muyiwa Babafumilayo Opaleye, was shot dead at a popular drinking joint on Adekunle Kuye Street in Surulere, Lagos. It was learnt that the gunmen, about four in number, shot Muyiwa dead at a close rang before bolting away.
One of the deceased’s friends, identified as Kunle, who tried to rush him to the hospital, was arrested and taken to Soloki Police Station.
It was learnt that all efforts made at convincing the Police that the deceased was his friend fell on deaf ears.
It was also gathered that Kunle was interrogated and made to write a statement, while Muyiwa’s body was taken to a morgue. (Text by Guardian)
