Hamzat, former chairman of Ikeja LGA and Lagos State Special Adviser on
Health, was shot dead yesterday night in Sagamu by suspected armed robbers.
Although there were speculations that he was
on his way back to Lagos from Abeokuta where he had gone to prepare
ground for the much awaited chieftaincy title of Bola Ahmed Tinubu by
the Alake of egbaland when the incident occured, this information was debunked by a high ranking chieftain of the ACN in
According to him, “Toyin’s death has nothing to do with
Asiwaju’s chieftancy. Toyin spent his
weekends in his country home in Aiyepe which is 5 minutes drive to
Sagamu and was going from Sagamu Club to his house when he was killed.
“We were scheduled to spend the weekend together in his country home in
Aiyepe until I changed my mind. If I didn’t, we would have been together at the time of his assasination”..CKN
