Gunmen suspected to be armed robbers have reportedly killed one Michael Omotayo in Okene, Kogi State.

According to one Saleh Bala, the deceased was part of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 established by President Buhari on March, 2020. 

Michael was killed on Wednesday, May 25, by highway robbers around Okene on his way to visit his mother, according to Mr Bala. 


“I met Michael Omotayo through the Kasimu Idris family. Michael was with the Presidential Task Force on COVID. He was killed yesterday by highway robbers around Okene on his way to visit his mother. I am numbed,” he wrote. 


“I introduced Michael to a number of close friends and family, who like me he helped to facilitate their access to the COVID vaccine. I can hardly remember a more polite, courteous and committed gentleman, and a passionate Nigerian like Michael. We really have lost a human


“Nigeria has lost a good and resourceful patriot. He is really of the fold of those citizens who are silently in their small corners making Nigeria work and giving it the invaluable slight peace there is. Shame that he exited through violence. When will this cowardice and crass wickedness stop. Adieu brother”
