A middle aged man, Adeogun Samuel Oluwole has reportedly ran for his dear life over threat to
his life and attempt to assassinate him by people suspected to be religious extremist.
Adeogun Our Correspondent gathered have been threatened several times by
people suspected to be religious fanatics.
Speaking to Our Correspondent, a one of his close friend who pleaded for anonymity said Adeogun’s travails started during his
National Youth Service programme in Kaduna when some religious
fanatics invaded his home for ‘unknowingly’ mentioning the name of
Jesus while having a conversation with a friend.
“One of the students which I was teaching then proceeded to inform their community leaders that the name of”ISA” that is “JESUS” is being mentioned by a Corp member, a situation that have been part of me since my childhood.
He added that the Extremists allegedly pursue him to his home, but met
his absence and decided to turn his home upside down.
“They met his home disorganized. The room was turned upside down which
clearly showed that the room was turned upside down but nothing was stolen not and this got him suspicious. he knew he was in danger and under a threat that i was not safe in the town anymore which got him confused because he never knew the gravity of what he did”.
Our source also said that the Community also accused him of attempting to convert the Muslim students to Christianity.
