Yakubu Dogara, The Speaker of the House of Representatives, sympathizes with the family of late Oyo lawmaker, Olatoye Sugar.
Oyo lawmaker, Olatoye Temitope, was shot at a polling unit by political thugs in Elesu, Lagelu Local Government Area during Saturday’s elections in the state and later confirmed dead by the University Teaching Hospital in Ibadan.
In a message on his Twitter handle @YakubDogara on Saturday night, Mr Dogora described the killing as shocking, primitive and wicked.
“I received with shock, the sad and distressing news of the assassination of my brother and colleague, Hon. Olatoye Temitope Sugar, in Oyo State today. The murder of Hon Sugar in election violence today is primitive, wicked, inhumane, barbaric and highly condemnable,” Mr Dogora said.
