A very sad report reaching us indicates that Mr. Adeola Adebayo the Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Ikole Ekiti Branch has been murdered by his kidnappers despite receiving a ransom fee of N3millon.
According to the Secretary of NBA Ikere Ekiti Branch, Michael Afolayan, the decomposed body of late Adebayo was found dumped by his assailants.
“Learned Seniors, Colleagues, and Fellow Branch Secretaries.
With a saddened heart, I regret to inform this body that the decomposed body of our Brother Secretary of Ikole Ekiti Branch, Adeola Adebayo, who was kidnapped 15 days ago was found today having been killed by his abductors days ago.
While appreciating this Body for your prayers and well-wishes throughout our travail on his abduction, we urge you to continue to pray for the Bar in Ekiti, wife, child, siblings, and the parents of our departed colleague for the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
May we also see this unfortunate event as opportunity to call for responsible governance towards ensuring security of lives and properties at all levels in Nigeria. I pray that God in His infinite Mercy will put a stop to this kind of happenings in our midst. God bless you all.”
This is really sad.
May his soul find rest.
