The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state has called for an in-depth investigation into the death of Late Gideon Aremu, member of the state House of Assembly.

The party also described the deceased lawmaker as an energetic man, adding that the state will miss him.

A statement issued by the Oyo APC Director of Publicity and Strategy, Olawale Sadare, said “We received the news of the killing of Hon. Gideon Aremu with utter disbelief and rude shock.

“This is in view of the fact that such nasty development and political violence have become history in the state since 2011 when the current administration took the mantle of leadership of Oyo State.”

The statement also said “We pray God to grant Aremu eternal rest and give his immediate and political family the fortitude to bear the loss

“More importantly, we call on the police and other relevant security agencies to conduct thorough investigations into the matter with a view to unmasking the culprits and bringing them to justice as soon as possible.”

The lawmaker was killed by unknown gunmen on Friday, July 1, 2016.

Late Gideon Aremu was the chairman of the Oyo state House of Assembly Committee on Information, Public Relations and Security.
