Temitope Olatoye ‘Sugar’, as he is popularly referred to, a serving federal lawmaker representing Lagelu/Akinyele Federal Constituency in Oyo State, has been shot, SaharaReporters just learnt.

Olatoye was shot by suspected thugs in Elesu village in Ward 13, Lalupon, Lagelu Local Government Area of Oyo State, on Saturday evening.

It was learnt that Olotoye was rushed to the Accident and Emergency Centre of the University College Hospital (UCH) in Ibadan.

A source in his village, who confirmed the news to SaharaReporters, said he was shot by persons suspected to be thugs.

Mr. Olatoye Temitope, a.k.a., ‘Sugar’, has just been shot at his village in Lagelu area of Oyo State, but I can’t say if he was shot dead. He was shot in the eye by some of the thugs who stormed his area and they have rushed him to UCH here in Ibadan,” he said.
