The Police Command in Oyo State, on Sunday, confirmed the murder of a popular Ibadan radio presenter, Titus Badejo, by unknown gunmen.

Mr Badejo, a former presenter with Naija FM Ibadan, murdered on Saturday outside Club 407 in the Oluyole area of Ibadan at about 11:30 p.m., police spokesperson in the state, DSP Adewale Osifeso, confirmed.

The spokesman said that investigations were ongoing to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident and apprehend the assailants.

“At about 7:30 a.m. on Sunday 20th June 2021, one Damilola Afolabi, the manager at Club 407, reported at the Oluyole divisional police headquarters that one Titus Badejo, journalist and freelance disc jockey with the club, was shot outside the club’s premises by unknown assailants on Saturday 19th June.

“However, comprehensive investigations are in top gear to unravel circumstances surrounding the incident and to apprehend the assailants. Verifiable updates would be provided soonest,” Mr Osifeso said in the text message to NAN.

A source, who pleaded anonymity, told NAN that the deceased, popularly called ‘Ejanla,” meaning “big fish” in English, had been at the club with friends since 9:00 p.m.

“When he was leaving with his friends in his car around 11:30 p.m., two masked men on a motorcycle wielding a gun suddenly stopped his car and asked all of them to lie down.

“He was the only one shot by the gunmen who left immediately without taking anything or touching the other occupants of the car,” the source said.

His corpse has since been deposited at the morgue of Adeoyo Hospital, Ring Road, Ibadan.
