the whole thing accused the National Union in Ika South of the threat on his
life and that of members of the union who are loyal to him. Some eye witnesses

and quiet man called on the police and other law enforcement agencies to make
sure that the killers are brought to book.
Abiodun Omoroje , a driver, who escaped death by a hairs on the fateful day
that Sunday was killed, in his words, “ I was eating at Odozi street when
I remembered that there was no drink in
my store. Then I boarded an okada that will take me to the place I will buy
drink. On our way going, I noticed a crowd at Professor Ebie/Isedeh street,
immediately I tapped the okada man that was carrying me to stop. As soon as we
stopped, one of the gunmen and a union
leader brought out a gun and shot me at a close range. I fell into the gutter
but struggled out immediately and escaped into a nearby building.
Mr Abiodun who
weekly to the scene, where he was shot said at no time was he or Chief
Denis Araro had any intention of taking over NURTW in Ika south saying that he
did not know why they are being attacked by members of the union. He appealed
to the government to look into the union issue in Ika south, particularly
now that the killers of Sunday Boi are
saying that they are going to kill more people.
