Omotoyosi Ojajune, the daughter of the Lagos landlord, Mr. Samuel Adegoroye Ojajune (aka Koro Maya), who was murdered, narrates how her father was gruesomely killed in her presence.
Mr. Ojajune was killed at No.1 Koro Ojajune Street, Maya, Ikorodu around 10 and 11pm on January 12, in the presence of his eldest child.
The 13 year old girl narrates the horrific murder of her dad on that night as they were preparing to sleep.
“It happened around 10.00pm on January 12, 2017, I was watching television and also assisting my brother with his assignment, after which he went to rest then I sighted someone peeping through the window.
“I went to inform my mother twice but she was so tired and just concluded that I should go and sleep, the gunmen gained entrance into our house when I tried waking my daddy up.
“The gunmen were five, while one outside asking us to bring out our phones, the others took my daddy outside, having shot him and he was still dragging with them, that was when one of them macheted him on his head and neck.
“One of them that slapped me was putting on a red cap and yellow jersey holding a gun while the other also wore a red cap, a black top and trousers with white trainers.
‘’My mother, siblings and I were so terrified that we could not do anything to help save my father. When they left my father was still breathing and wanted to tell my mum something but she was just moving up and down.
“We later ran into the bush at our backyard and went to our cousin’s house as we could not get any help from neighbours, the government should help my mother with job so that she can cater for our needs and pay our school fees.”
