Mrs Funke Kolawole, the Permanent Secretary, Bureau of General Service, Osun State, was this morning, murdered!!

The deceased was said to have been killed by a yet to be identified gunmen. She was kidnapped and killed on her way to Abuja to felicitate with her friend - the Solicitor-General of Osun State, who was recently elevated to a judge.

Mrs Kolawole’s younger brother, Femi Ajibade, has confirmed the sad incident, which took place today, Friday, July 14.

The report said Ajibade described his sister’s death as devastating and shocking, adding that, anxiety had crept in when the family did not hear from her after she embarked on the journey.

“I spoke with her last on Wednesday, and one of my sisters called me on Thursday evening that her number could not be reached; I rushed down to her house at Ofatedo where I gathered that she was in a critical condition after being attacked and shot by ‘armed robbers’ in Kogi state, on her way to Abuja for an event.

“We later arranged among the family members to travel to Kogi and ascertain her condition, but we were prevailed upon not to go again, as some of her associates confirmed to us that she was dead,” Ajibade reportedly said about the Permanent Secretary, who is from the Modakeke area of Ife East local government area of the state.
