Metro Lagos: Bus Driver Killed During Agbaje's PDP Rally, Murder Suspected


Social Member
On August 26th, we reported that PDP governorship aspirant Jimi Agbaje came under attack during his PDP rally and one of his supporters was shot in the leg. As it turns out, the 'supporter' was a bus driver and he is now dead under mysterious circumstances.

Osun Defender has the full story. Read the excerpt below:

Ekujumi (Executive Director, Centre for Rights and Grassroots Initiative) said, “From our findings, it was discovered that Adeboye had a bullet wound on his thigh, we also found out that the bus which Adeboye drove was blood stained and which necessitated the family prevailing on the police at Ketu Division to impound the bus in question.

“We also suspected that Adeboye might have been shot at the PDP rally in Epe, but was kept in the bus to die from his injury by those he took to Epe with the sole intention of covering up this crime and thereafter dumped his body close to the Lagos end of the old toll gate to make it look like he had an accident at the spot where he was found.”

However, the Jimi Agbaje Organisation denied employing the deceased driver. The organisation in a statement said none of the vehicles
in Agbaje’s entourage was a commercial bus. The organisation described the allegations against Agbaje as baseless, saying the organisation could not be held responsible for what happens among motley groups at its rallies.

The statement read in part, “Not only are these insinuations far-fetched, they are totally false, mischievous, absurd and unwarranted. They smack of a deliberate and desperate attempt to soil the good image of our organisation, our supporters and our principal.

“In fact, the Jimi Agbaje organisation never hired the services of commercial transporters for its tours, spanning the 20 local government areas of Lagos State.

“Even if the dead driver cannot now corroborate this fact, his ‘master’ remains a living witness.”
