A Saudi Arabia-based oil expert, Ogacheko Atanu, was assassinated by gunmen in his Idah residence, Kogi State.
It was gathered that the incident happened on Saturday around 11pm when the deceased was about retiring to bed.
It was learnt that when the assassins stormed the compound, Ogacheko was asked to say his last prayers before he was shot several times.
His elder brother, Mr Ukubile Atanu, who is a lecturer in the Art and Design Department, Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, confirmed the incident.
Ukubile, who could not hold back his tears while speaking to a Punch correspondent on the incident, charged security agencies to bring his brother’s killers to justice.
He stated, “When they (gunmen) entered his compound around 11pm on Saturday, they told Ogacheko to say his last prayers before they would kill him. He told them that he would give them money if they spared his life, but they refused. That was how he was shot repeatedly. They didn’t touch the gateman.
“After he was killed, his gateman went straight to the police station to report the incident. This is a black day in our family. Those behind this evil act must be brought to justice.”
It was further learnt that the deceased, who is survived by four children and an 80-year-old mother, was billed to travel to Abuja on Sunday, where he was expected to connect a flight to Saudi Arabia.
