On Thursday evening, the deceased had just attended the party’s local government campaign kick-off at Oriade Local Development Area.

Top party officials attended the meeting, including Mr Valentine Buraimo, Chairman of the Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area.

A gunshot was heard from the throng outside the gathering, according to eyewitnesses.

Kayode was discovered in a pool of his own blood when everyone inside the hall hurried out to find out what had caused the gunshot.

As far as we can tell, the mystery gunman’s bullet struck him in the leg.
Everyone took to their heels as the catastrophe threw the entire premises into pandemonium.

Kayode was then rushed to the Nigerian Navy Reference Hospital, Navy Town, Ojo, where he was confirmed dead.

A member of the party who spoke anonymously expressed surprise that a bullet within the leg could claim someone’s life.

Explaining what happened, he said, “Ekpo Kinkin was a really popular person in this area. He was shot, right in Oriade LCDA secretariat, on the brink of Agboju police headquarters.

“During the stampede caused by the gunshot, a man suspected to have pulled the trigger was said to have been seen walking casually out of the premises.

“We have lodged a complaint to the Police. We hope they will fish out Ekpo’s killer,” sources stated.
