Veteran journalist and member of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Adinoyi Ojo-Onukaba, is dead.
Ojo-Onukaba, a governorship aspirant in the last Kogi Primary election, was reportedly killed on the Ilesha-Akure Road on his way back from the official inauguration of President Olusegun Obasanjo Library.
Although details of the circumstances surrounding his death are sketchy, the Special Adviser on Political Matters to President Muhammadu Buhari, Sen. Bafemi Ojudu, said he was reportedly killed in an encounter with armed robbers.
“Onukaba was a brilliant and incorruptible journalist. He stood out among his colleagues then as aviation correspondent for The Guardian where he met and struck friendship Obasanjo,” Ojudu wrote on his Facebook page, adding that he would be buried later today.
