He said further, did Sugar go to Oja’ba to buy yam? Or did he go to Bodija to buy beans? It was during election, and he was coming back from where he went to perform his civic responsibility as a good citizen of this country and as a federal legislator. His killing has much importance to his political murderers,” Mr Olatoye said.

He concluded :“I want to say categorically that Sugar was the breadwinner of this Olatoye family and they have taken him away. What is now our gain? If this incident is not curbed, they will still do it to (kill) other members of the family,” he added.
