Oyo State Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Mr Gbenga Fadeyi confirmed the assassination of prominent Lagos-based trado-medical expert Mr Fatai Yusuf, better known as Oko Oloyun.
He said in a newspaper interview that Yusuf was killed on the road about 4:30 pm while traveling to Iseyin, Oyo State. At Igboora, he was allegedly assaulted by certain hoodlums. His corpse was deposited at Igbo-Ora General Hospital mortuary.
Fadeyi, a Police Superintendent (SP), said police commissioner Mr Shina Olukolu and some deputy commissioners visited the site of the incident.
The PPRO said a manhunt for the hoodlums was led by Olukolu.
Until his brutal murder, Yusuf was chairman of the Nigerian Association of Physiotherapists.
His companies were De-Fayus International and Oko-Oloyun Worldwide.
He also engaged in some money ventures, promising high returns to people investing in distributors of his products to as high as 10 per cent. People investing N10 m are guaranteed return N1 m in two months; investment N500,000 would yield return N50,000 in two months as well.
