But a statement issued in Abuja on Friday night by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), said: “the deceased was reportedly shot Friday along the Kajola-Ore road, in Ondo State, by those the police described as armed robbers.”
The President prayed that God will comfort Pa Fasoranti, and give him the fortitude to bear the grievous loss.
He also directed security agencies to swing into action and bring the hoodlums to justice in the shortest possible time.
