A consultant orthopaedic surgeon, working with Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, Dr Thomas Adekoya-Cole was killed on Sunday morning in his town near Itele, Ijebu-Ode Ogun state, moments after being abducted from his country home. He was gruesomely macheted to death.
Dr Cole, 60 in February, was said to have been killed by suspected sympathisers of a native doctor. The native doctor was said to have been killed by ‘area boys’ in Ijebu Ode, Saturday night during a ceremony. The police were called to arrest the suspected assassins, according to sources close to Cole’s Egbe Bobakeye Akile Ijebu.
