Bursary Award:Ondo Commissioner Beaten by thugs hospitalised
commissioner representing Ondo Central in the Ondo State Oil Development Area Development Commission (OSOPADEC), Kehinde Akinrotoye, popularly known as ‘BonsueAketi’, has been hospitalised after he was beaten to a pulp by hoodlums.
The thugs stormed the premises of OSOPADEC and disrupted the disbursement of bursary and scholarship awards by the intervention agency.
They shot sporadically into the air after preventing the ceremony from taking off.
The staff of the agency and students scampered for safety.
One of the staff who pleaded anonymity said the hoodlums came in hired vehicles.
The staff said the thugs targeted the Commissioner and beat him to a pulp after they accused him of being a misrepresentation in the commission because he hails from a non-oil producing area.
It was gathered that the vehicle that brought Akinrotoye was destroyed and vandalized by the hoodlums.
Men of the Ondo State Police Command were called in to restore normalcy.
In September, Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs. Bunmi Osadahun, was attacked over the distribution of palliatives.
