Popular radio presenter, Mr Titus Badejo aka Eja Nla who worked at Naija FM has been assassinated by unknown gunmen on Saturday in Ibadan.
The Ogbomoso-born presenter had celebrated his 40th birthday in the company of other Ogbomoso indigenes living in Ibadan at a birthday party tagged ‘Made in Ogbomoso’ a week before he was gruesomely murdered.
According to sources, Eja Nla was killed around 11:30 pm outside club 407, Oluyole when he was about to leave the premises. On his way out, Eja Nla and his friends were waylaid by two masked men driving by on a motorcycle who suddenly stopped them and ordered them to lie down on the floor at gunpoint.
After complying, the gunmen repeatedly shot at “Eja Nla” and made sure he was dead before leaving the scene of the murder without stealing anything. Oyo Affairs reported.
Naija Banquet gathered that the Police were informed immediately after the murder to access the scene and go after the assailants before his remains were moved to the Adeoyo Hospital Mortuary.
