Gunmen assassinate Saudi Arabia based oil expert in Kogi
Unknown gunmen have assassinated a Saudi Arabia based oil expert, Ogacheko Atanu, in his Idah residence of Kogi State.
It was learnt that the incident happened on Saturday night at about 11 p.m.
It was also gathered that the assassins stormed the compound of late Ogacheko Atanu and asked him to say his last prayers before he was shot.
His elder brother, Mr Ukubile Atanu, who is a lecturer with the Kogi State Polytechnic Lokoja, under the Art and Design Department, confirmed the incident on Sunday.
Mr Ukubile Atanu charged security agencies to bring the culprits to book.
According to him, “when they (gunmen) entered his compound at about 11PM on Saturday, they told him (late Ogacheko Atanu) to say his last prayers before they killed him. He told them that he will give them money, so that they can spare his life, but they refused. That was how he was shot repeatedly. They didn’t touch the gateman.
“After he was killed, his gateman went straight to the police station to report the incident. I must tell you, this is another black day in our family. Those behind this evil act must be brought to book.”
His remains had been deposited at the morgue of the Kogi State Specialist Hospital Lokoja.
