Okeigbo community in the state, has continued to mourn its revered Professor Jerome Elusiyan, who is believed was assassinated.
This line of thought is centred on the fact that his people are of the opinion that the deceased would have been promoted in the next three months as the substantial Chief Medical Director of OAU Teaching Hospital.
Some citizens who spoke on the basis of anonymity, said, “Prof. would have been promoted in the next three months as the substantial Chief Medical Director of OAU Teaching Hospital. He was assassinated! How do you describe his death? He wasn’t robbed. His car wasn’t taken. He was the target. They didn’t attack the driver because he was the one that drove his dead body to the hospital. Professor Elusiyan was killed and that is why we don’t want to wait for police investigation or wait on God to fight for us. We want to go to our root so as to show his assailants and those who sent them that they can’t kill him and get away with it.”
These indigenes are contemplating diabolical means of unravelling his cause of death. “We have employed Ogun (god of thunder), Sanpona (god of measles), Obatala (sky father and the creator of human bodies) and other Orishas to fight our course. The whole community has agreed on this, irrespective of religions or believes. He is a true son of the soil. He has helped the community a lot as well in one way or another. We are going to be doing this for the next 7 days before he will be laid to rest. We have brought out all our ancient God’s. So, let us see where they are going to hide.”
The deceased was the Chairman , Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC) , Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex, (OAUTH), Ile-Ife.
According to reports, he was killed while travelling between Ekpoma and Benin, city Edo State in company of his driver.
