Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen have reportedly murdered a cleric, Rev’d Johnson Oladimeji along Igbara-Odo- Ikere-Ekiti road in Ekiti state on Friday, November 27.
The Nation reports that Oladimeji was murdered beside the Bamidele Olumilua University of Education, Science, and Technology in the town. The gunmen who were said to be hiding in the forest along the road waylaid his vehicle and shot sporadically at it in an attempt to stop the driver. Some of the bullets hit Johnson.
A source close to the deceased, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the family members had launched a search for the pastor before his body was found in a pool of his blood in his car with gunshot wounds.
