This Baba really need to pray so he’s not killed before his time. Ex-Secretary to Federal Government, Chief Olu Falae, on Tuesday escaped death after one of the policemen escorting a bullion van opened fire on his vehicle while travelling to Ile-Ife, Osun State.
Falae was travelling to Ile-Ife for Afenifere leaders’ visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi when the incident happened at Ile-Oluji Junction.
Falae was quoted to have said:
“I was coming from Akure, approaching Ilesa. I saw some vehicles ahead of me. There was a bullion van in front, the vehicles ahead of us were overtaking the bullion van and we followed too.
“We just barely passed them when I heard a shot and I heard a bang on the car. We stopped and we discovered that they had shot at our car.
“They didn’t stop. We stopped at Erin-Ijesa and complained to the police at the checkpoint that one of the policemen escorting a bullion van fired at us at Ile-Oluji Juction.”
A leader of the Afenifere in Osun State, Mr. Niyi Owolade, said, “I have just spoken to him and he confirmed it. He said his car was shot at by a bullion van escort. Chief said he would take it up because such a thing should not be allowed.”
