Late Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde
Governor Adams Oshiomohole
Few days after surviving a fatal car crash, Governor Adams Oshiomohole of Edo State has lost one of his key staff- his Principal Private Secretary.
Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde, Principal Private Secretary to Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomohole was on Thursday night shot dead in his residence in Benin.
Born in Ilorin, Kwara State, Olaitan attended the University of Lagos and holds B.A in Mass Communication.
A career trade unionist, he started his trade union career with the Iron and Steel Senior Staff Association of Nigeria. He was also the Chairman of Lagos State branch of the Campaign for Democracy (CD). In 2001, he joined the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and was the Deputy General Secretary before taking a leave of absence to work with Governor Oshiomohole.
Funny enough, Governor Oshiomohole had alleged that the accident that claimed the lives of 3 journalists last week was an assassination attempt but the PDP rubbished his allegation. Well, it looks like the man may be right afterall.
