Gunmen assassinated Alaba Excel Abbey, a campaign coordinator for Ondo State Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, on Sunday.

The Ondo State Police spokesperson, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, confirmed the incident, stating that the state command had initiated an investigation into the brutal killing.

Abbey, who served as a ward coordinator for the Lucky Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organization Foot-Soldiers (LACO-SF), was killed at his home in Supare Akoko, Akoko South West Local Government Area.

He also acted as the returning officer for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ward 10 during the recent primary election, in which Aiyedatiwa secured the party’s governorship ticket.

A relative, Mr. Samuel Abbey, confirmed the tragic news, revealing that the politician was shot in front of his house.

The Lucky Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organization Foot-Soldiers (LACO-SF) condemned Abbey’s gruesome murder and called on security agencies, particularly the police, to safeguard its members from such attacks.

Kayode Fasua, spokesperson for the campaign organization, stated that Abbey had been actively involved in Aiyedatiwa’s campaign activities until his untimely demise.

David Ajobiewe, the Director-General of LACO-FS in Akoko Southwest Local Government, described Abbey’s killing as a significant tragedy, emphasizing that he was known for his resourcefulness and non-violent nature.

“We urge the police authorities to intensify investigations into his gruesome murder and bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to justice,” Ajobiewe urged.
