Hector Oluwaseun Jobarteh, who was killed almost 10 days in Lagos will be buried today in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Though details of the burial plan is sketchy as at the time of filing this report, unconfirmed report has it that Hector hailed from Ibadan.
The father of one, who won the Gulder Ultimate Search, GUS, in 2006, was shot by two unknown gunmen who reportedly trailed him to his house in Agege.
Reports have it that he had just arrived from the Lagos International Airport where he had gone to pick up his younger brother when the sad incident occurred.
The men were said to have shot him, after threatening a co-tenant who then gave them direction to his flat where he was killed.
He was later rushed to a hospital in the area where he was confirmed dead.
The case was said to have been reported to policemen at the New Oko Oba division.
Preliminary investigation by the Police showed the attack was cult-related.
According to Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, who confirmed the killing, the police had swung into action and had arrested three suspects.
He said, “The residents picked the faces of some of the suspects, which aided police investigations. Three suspects have been arrested.”
He said, “He had returned into the country about three months ago. He went to pick his brother on Saturday. The killers followed him to his house. When they got to the apartment, they met his younger brother who asked who they were. They told him that they wanted to see his elder brother. Immediately they sighted him, one of them brought out a gun and shot him dead.
“From what we have gathered, it appeared to be a reprisal. There are some pointers that it had something to do with cultism.”
