Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Oyo State Chapter has called on Governor Seyi Makinde and the State Police Command to do everything within their power to fish out the killers of the Ìbàdàn-based radio presenter, Titus Badejo, popularly called Eja Nla.

Badejo, who was a presenter and On-Air Personality (OAP) with Naija FM, was reportedly killed at a popular night club in Oluyole area of Ibadan around 9pm on Saturday.

In a condolence message signed by its chairman, Comrade Ademola Babalola on Sunday, NUJ described the death of the journalist as “one death too many for us in Oyo NUJ to comprehend.”

Babalola frowned at the spate of ‘senseless and avoidable’ killings in the state, calling on major stakeholders to ensure that they prioritise security of lives and property across the state.

The condolence message as signed by Comrade Babalola fully reads:

“Gone too soon! Titus Badejo. We mourn the untimely passing and gruesome murder of a journalist whose sad killing took place on Saturday at a Club in Oluyole area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital.”

“A very distinguished OAP, DJ and Sports presenter, Badejo’s killing is one death too many for us in Oyo NUJ to comprehend. The spate of senseless killings & avoidable deaths is worrisome and calls for concern of all discerning members of the public.”

“It appears those who have scores to settle with one another, are using the rising insecurity in the state to perpetrate killings of monumental dimension. Under the cover of darkness, the assailants snuffed life out of a bubbling young man and cut short his precious life! What a cruel life!”

May your assailants never know peace. May the wrath of God descends on them wherever they are hibernating. We use this opportunity to once again, call on the authorities; the Governor, CP and others to fish out killers of deceased journalist and others mowed down in their primes in recent times.” The statement concluded.
