Few days after burial of ‘Sugar’, slain Oyo Rep member, bullion van kills his close aide

Mr Wale Azeez, a personal assistant to a former member of House of Representatives, Mr Temitope ‘Sugar’ Olatoye, is dead.

Olatoye, popularly called Sugar, represented Akinyele/Lagelu Federal Constituency of Oyo State until he was shot dead in Lalupon area of Ibadan on March 9 during the governorship election.

His remains were buried in Ibadan on May 3.

Our correspondent, however, gathered that his aide since 2011, Azeez, was hit by a bullion van a week after Olatoye’s burial.

The driver of the bullion van was allegedly driving against traffic on a ‘one way’ road in Iwo Road area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital, Wednesday last week when his vehicle knocked down Azeez.

The victim was said to have been rushed to University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan.

The driver was later detained at Testing Ground Police Station, Iwo Road, Ibadan.

Azeez, however, died on Monday, six days after the accident.

The 47-year old started working for Olatoye as a legislative aide in 2011 when the slain politician was elected to represent Lagelu State Constituency in Oyo State House of Assembly.
