Describing his death as a pill of reality too bitter to swallow, Mimiko said Oyewole was alive to his responsibilities, tasking his employer, the police, to do everything within its power to ensure that his killers are apprehended and brought to book.

The governor urged the authorities to ensure that the peaceful status of the state is maintained, saying that the peace in the state cannot be compromised.

Mimiko lamented that the wife and children of the deceased are subjected to experiencing the harsh side of life, while praying to God to dry their tears and quickly heal the wounds the sad occurrence must have inflicted on the family.

The late Oyewole, was the Unit Mobile Commander (Mopol 17) attached to the State Government House, Alagbaka, Akure. He was killed by suspected armed robbers last Wednesday at 8:30p.m. in his private house situated at Ugele community along Benin-Abuja Road in Akure.

Oyewole’s death was said to have occurred when the officer responded to a distress call from a neighbour without knowing that the distressed neighbour was under serious attack by armed robbers, who shot him immediately he arrived at his compound.
