“We heard that some hoodlums waylaid him on the bridge and shot him dead. I got the news through a telephone call.

“My brother wasn’t based in Ibadan. He just came home. He returned to Ibadan in the wake of the One Million Boys rage at Ago Iwoye in Ogun State. He was hit by a bullet at the scene; I was called on the telephone that he has been shot.

“On getting to the scene, he mentioned the Nasawe and Ekungbemi boys. Specifically, he mentioned Skeletor and Taye Alaga, Shuaibu Ishu, and Jeremi as those after him.

“He said the boys had said that they would continue to strike, that it would not end at that. They said following Moshood’s killing, more people would still go down.”

Confirming the report, the Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo State Command, Olugbenga Fadeyi, said, “Lanre Ahmed is a 30-year-old man. I can confirm to you that he was shot dead. An investigation has been intensified, those behind the killing shall be arrested and brought to justice.”
