    RCCG member gunned dead as he steps out to make calls during church service in Kwara

    Gunmen shot and killed an estate agent, Bayo Sina Babarinde, during a Sunday worship at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Living Word Parish, Basin Road, in Ilorin, the state capital of Kwara.

    Babarinde was said to have gone out of the chapel to take a phone call when his assailants opened fire on him.

    On Sunday, October 17, the incident occurred during the parish’s 7 a.m. service.

    Okasanmi Ajayi, a spokesperson for the State Police Command, confirmed the incident to Daily Trust on Monday night and said an investigation was underway to apprehend the offenders.

    “He was called on the phone during the service as he walked out of the church to receive the call. The sound of gunshots rent the air, which drew the attention of the congregation,” Okasanmi said.

    “As at the time the congregation got out of the church to see what was happening, it was discovered that the estate agent was already in the pool of his blood. It was discovered that he was shot in the head. The shells of the bullet used in killing the deceased have been recovered and the corpse has been deposited at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for postmortem

    “People should not entertain any fear as the police and other security agencies are working towards unravelling the situation surrounding the incident towards arresting the perpetrators and ensuring that the security of lives and property of our people are well protected.”


    The PPRO stated that Nigerian Police officers have already been deployed to strategic locations throughout the metropolis, including religious centres, to prevent a repeat of the incident, assuring citizens that they can go about their normal business.

    He also stated that Nigeria Police officers have been stationed in strategic locations throughout the metropolis to prevent a repeat of the incident.

    Meanwhile, the killers were reported to have called him out of the church, according to a tribute penned by Hon. Adekunle Abdulkabir Akinlade. Read on to learn more:




    Bayo Babarinde, yours was a very fulfilled life despite the numerous challenges. Although I didn’t know much of your early life, reflecting on our first meeting at Yewa High School Ajilete, Ogun State in 1987, it will be safe to say that all odds were against you as many of our contemporaries

    You were always full of life, you offered friendship with an open mind, you spoke your thoughts as you saw it. Out of sheer grace, a few of us made it out and you went on to study at the University of Benin while I went to the Lagos State University

    Our path crossed again in 2007 while I was putting a team together for my company and in your selfless nature, you offered to relocate to Ilorin with your family with the view to stabilize our operations in Kwara State

    For the last 34 years, you held up your end of the rope until the cold hands of death forced you to drop it on Sunday 17th October 2021. Most painful for me is the fact that you departed this world on the same date that I lost my mother 24 years ago

    My dear brother, I take solace in the fact you grew closer to your creator to the very end and it is also symbolic that your killers were said to have called you out of the church. I still can’t process the shock and pain your young family will be going through now, to think that you all left home that faithful Sunday morning to worship God and they returned without you

    Regardless of the motive or justification if any, no one deserves to die the way you did. I will miss you my dear brother and friend, Adieu, Bayo Babarinde.


    Rest In Peace!


    Hon. Adekunle Abdulkabir Akinlade
