Bandits have murdered Shila Ojebola, a staff member of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

According to People’s Gazette, Ojebola was murdered by the bandits after the family had paid N7million ransom to secure his release.

Ojebola, according to sources, was recently promoted to a manager at the FIRS’ Medium and Small Tax Office in the Lugbe area of the FCT.
The promotion was said to have come when Ojebola was in the bandits’ camp after he was kidnapped along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway about three weeks ago.

“He was promoted to the post of a manager while in their camp,” said a family source.
Meanwhile, it was gathered learnt that the police and State Security Service (SSS) were involved in the payment of the N7million ransom.

Over the past year, the Abuja-Kaduna Highway has become a danger zone with massive kidnappings and killings of travellers.
