The vice-chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Samuel Kayode, popularly known as Epo Kinkin, has been killed at the Agboju area of Lagos State.

According to reports, Epo kin kin who was a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress was at a rally organised by the party at Oriade Local Development Area when the gunmen invaded the rally on Friday and shot him dead.

Eyewitnesses said a gunshot was heard from the crowd outside while the meeting was on, forcing residents involved at the rally to scamper to safety.

When those inside the hall rushed to the scene, Kayode was found in the pool of his blood.

However, NURTW in Lagos State confirmed the incident to our correspondent, noting that the deceased was trying to protect a fellow politician when he was killed.

“He was protecting a fellow politician, Wale Yusuf, from harassment when the gunmen shot him dead,” said Jimoh Buhari, the spokesman for the NURTW Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, is yet to react to the sad incident.
