The group described the incident as a “shocking tragedy.”

“Excel had been a resourceful coordinator for the Aiyedatiwa campaign organisation in Ward 10 of Supare and was never known to be violent and never had any history of a local or domestic dispute,” LACO-SF said.

“We urge the police authorities to step up investigations into his gruesome murder and bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book.”

Police Public Relations Officer Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya confirmed the incident.

“The command is aware of the incident at Supare; the investigation is ongoing to unravel all that happened,” she said.
