Veteran journalist and member of the All Progressives Congress,  Dr Adinoyi Ojo-Onukaba, is dead.

Ojo-Onukaba, a governorship aspirant in the last Kogi Primary election, was reportedly killed on the Ilesha-Akure Road on his way back from the official inauguration of President Olusegun Obasanjo Library.

Although details of the circumstances surrounding his death are sketchy, the Special Adviser on Political Matters to President Muhammadu Buhari, Sen. Bafemi Ojudu, said he was reportedly killed in an encounter with armed robbers.
