Until his death, Ogunjobi was the chairman of Osun State Football Association.

In the meantime, the new Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Shina Olukolu, has assumed office following the deployment of his predecessor, Abiodun Odude.

This was disclosed in a statement issued on Monday in Ibadan by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, ASP Adekunle Ajisebutu.

Ajisebutu said the new commissioner  assured the people of the state of adequate security before, during and after the general elections and solicited the support of all residents to enable him succeed in his new assignment.

He said Olukolu, an indigene of Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State, was born on Oct. 11, 1960  and attended University of Lagos where he bagged BSc and MSc degrees in Political Science.

“The new CP was enlisted into the Nigeria Police Force as a Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police (Course) on March 15, 1988 and was trained at the Police Academy Annex, Kaduna.

Ajisebutu said the commissioner  had  carved a niche for himself as a thorough-bred professional who distinguished himself in all the places he had served.

He further said that Olukolu,  a successful crime fighter, would be  bringing his wealth of experience to bear on the policing of Oyo State.
