Gunmen have invaded the house of a prominent member of Accord Party in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, killing his guard.

The guard, identified as Pa P. A.Oyadotun, was killed as the gunmen tried to gain access to the Sawmill residence of Mr. Soji Oladejo, a chieftain of the party in Ibadan, in the early hours of yesterday.

Although the politician claimed it was an assassination attempt on him, the police said they could not conclude yet on what actually led to the crime, but said investigation has commenced.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Deputy Superintendent of Police Olabisi Ilobanafor, who confirmed the incident, the police would not limit their investigation to robbery attack.

The hoodlums reportedly broke the walls of their victim’s house at Ogbere Moradeyo, Sawmill area of Ibadan but could not get Oladejo.

Speaking on the attack, the politician said he escaped death narrowly. He said he was in a nearby church praying when the attackers struck.

“The assassins struck around 2.05 a.m and forcefully entered my house after breaking through the fence. They killed the guard and threatened to kill all members of my household if I was not produced.

“They thought I was inside my car so they fired several shots at it.

“After dealing with my household and confirmed that I was not in the house, they left, taking away one of my children’s laptops,” he said.
