The younger brother of the Oyo State Commissioner for Special Duties, Mrs. Funmilayo Orisadeyi, has been brutally murdered by unknown gunmen.

The 45-year-old, Isaac Orisadeyi was said to have been shot dead along Nihort-Idi-isin Road in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Tuesday.

A source very close to the family said the commissioner inveterates that two hospitals declined the victim before he eventually kicked the bucket.

It was discovered that Isaac was on a commercial motorcycle on his way home from work around 8 pm in the night when the ugly occurrence took place.

The gunmen, who were said to be attempting to snatch the motorcycle on which he rode, allegedly pulled the trigger when the rider resisted them.

In another development, a farmer, Adoja Tanaku, has been beheaded after a little disagreement with his crony, identified as Joseph, at the Bakatari area in Ibadan.

Both men were said to be Benin Republic indigents.

The Oyo State Police Spokesperson, Olugbenga Fadeyi, said the body of the casualty had been deposited in a mortuary, while Joseph was in police custody.

He said Isaac’s case was being investigated at the Eleyele Division of the Nigerian Police Force.
