Details emerge on the murder of Mr Sesan Ogunro, father of ace Video director Sesan
A family source told Pm News the deceased had prepared to leave the event around past 9 p.m when his assailants accosted him. He had come out of the event, only to find that his family
members, who came in a Toyota Yaris car were engaged in an argument with some people, who were demanding for phones and money. When he moved closer, the hoodlums faced him, also asking for his car keys, phones, money.
Ogunro’s hesitation to succumb to their demands was thought to have infuriated his attackers, who eventually shot him at close range.
According to our source, the expended bullet shell found around the scene suggested Ogunro must have been shot with a locally-made gun.
After the attack, the killers were said to have thrown out Ogunro’s son and grandchildren from the rear of the car before speeding off.
They were also said to have abandoned the car they originally came in, which is now in the custody of the police at the Alausa Police Station.
P.M. News investigation further revealed that aside the church event, a private party was simultaneously taking place at a nearby event hall, thereby booming the road with various cars.
This paper could not ascertain if adequate security measure was taken by the organisers to check intruders.
Our source also stated that the slain Ogunro was first rushed to the Lagoon Hospital on Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja, before he was transported in an ambulance to the hospital’s headquarters in Apapa for special attention.
“You know because he was shot with a dane gun, the pellets spread all around his stomach and perforated his internal organs. So the hospital manager we telephoned requested he was brought to Apapa for specialist’s attention,”
P.M. News was told that Ogunro battled to live and was speaking to those around him until he gave up few hours later.
While the Police have not spoken on their investigation, many, including Ogunro’s family believed it was a robbery.
The deceased’s eldest son, Sesan Snr, a video director, who had travelled outside the country, was being expected tomorrow morning by the family.
Ogunro, an Ekiti State-born, was survived by four children (two boys and two girls ), his grandchildren and wife. One of his children was a radio presenter with Beat FM, Fade Ogunro.
