The 50-year-old was shot dead at a beer parlour on Oyenuga Street in the Akoka area of Lagos on Friday evening.
According to Punch, Adejumo on the fateful night was in the joint with three of his friends when some strange faces stormed the pub.They were said to have headed straight for their target where he sat and hit him in the chest, before firing shots at him.The gunshots were said to have caused confusion in the area.
The deceased died some minutes later because he could not get help on time.
When our correspondent visited Akoka on Saturday, he observed that the area was quiet, while the beer parlour was locked.A resident, who did not identify himself, said the owner of the drinking house had been arrested and was being interrogated at the Bariga Police Station.
"The incident happened around 8.30pm on Friday. We suddenly heard gunshots and we all rushed into our different houses because we did not know what exactly happened.It was later we learnt that one of those in the beer parlour was killed.It was not a robbery because they did not steal anything or injure anybody else. Immediately they killed him, they left."
A source, who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that Adejumo might have been killed by suspected cultists.He said,
"When the gang got in, they went to where he was sitting. They had different weapons, ranging from cutlasses to guns.One of them went to him, hit him in the chest and he fell down. He then brought out a gun and shot him point blank.On the table where he was drinking with his friends were a pay slip, his ATM cards and his car key.
Our correspondent learnt from another source that the men wanted to go away with the deceased's ash coloured Pathfinder, marked, Lagos APP 404 CM, but could not.
"We don't know exactly what their intention was. But there were blood stains on the car and the car key also had blood stains. We suspected they wanted to drive it away, but abandoned it when they saw it was not responding,"
It was learnt that Adejomo's car and that of one of his friends with whom he went to the pub, were taken away by the police.Our correspondent gathered that his three friends were also being interrogated.
A source said,
"Since he had been going out to drink, he had never gone out with these friends. So, they are also suspects . Although one of them claimed to be injured during the incident, there may be more to it than meets the eye."
The Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lelma Kolle, confirmed the incident.
"Investigations revealed that the man parked his car a distance away from where he was drinking. The police also discovered that there was a blood stain on the car and the car key was found within the vicinity, also with blood stains. This can only mean that after they killed him, they attempted to go away with his car.
They actually succeeded in opening the car because there were blood stains on the car seat. But the car did not move because of the security system in it.
"The owner of the bar has been arrested and he has made statements. We cannot categorically say whether this was a robbery or an assassination plot. The matter is still under investigation."
Killings everywhere, when these world go safe. Wetin even the man do wey them go take him life.

Back in May 2014, the "Skelewu" singer blasted the Immigration Service for making him miss his flight to London because they allegedly demanded for bribe.
He wrote on Instagram: "Missed my flight to London !! Pissed!! F**kin immigration officers always harassing me cus of money!! F**k ni**as!!"
Few days later, the Immigration Service responded to the 21-year-old singer's bribery accusation calling it 'a lie' and saying 'he's very rude'. According to them, the ONLY reason Davido missed his flight was simply because he didn't have valid travel documents.
Well, two months after then, Davido is seen shaking hands and smiling with the same Deputy Comptroller of Nigerian Immigration Service on his Instagram. The "Aye" hit-maker posted a photo on his page Thursday Aug. 28 [indirectly] announcing that the beef is 'squashed'.
He wrote: "God bless the Nigerian Immigration Service!! Big ups to the Deputy Comptroller of Immigration Mr. Ajifase J.O!! Hooked me up with a brand new Nigerian passport! Ready for movement!!
Going by the post, Davido just said, "I guess my documents are now valid!"
Davido been no know say person no dey fight government. Na now him brain just open. I thank God for am sha if not, them for use am dey play anytime him wan travel.
According to the singer, he never wanted to stay long in the secular music because of his role in the Living Gospel Mission choir while growing, but that people made him change to who he is today.
Timaya narrated that he actually started with music about God before singing about envies, which many lambasted him for. The singer said he then decided to do something new, which was why he took off his dreadlocks.
He further revealed that what people don't know that he never for once left God, adding that he sang the 'Ukwu' song to make a living for himself. Timaya disclosed that he still goes back to pray for forgiveness.
Abeg, make them live Timayafor people wey like am. After all, people wey talk say them dey sing song with meaning, him get fame and money pass them.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the three accused persons used the hotel's CCTV to record an unidentified man's sex act with his girlfriend. They produced a DVD on it and used it to demand a N10million ransom from the man. They also posted the video on Facebook on Aug 13th and 23rd after the man refused to pay up.
The suspects pleaded not guilty to the charges and were granted N100,000 bail each with two sureties of like sum. They were moved to the Kirikiri prison pending the time they meet their bail conditions while the case was adjourned till September 19th.
Some people sha. So them employ them make them work, them turn themselves to blue film makers. Abi them no know say na wetin people go dey do inside hotel abi them expect to see people wey go pray inside hotel.
Anita Odegwa Oyakhilome, has entered the final phase, TheCable can report. The wife is seeking divorce on the grounds of "unreasonable behaviour" and "adultery". She outlined several allegations against the pastor which TheCable cannot publish for legal reasons.
The divorce case, with Suit No FD14D01650, was filed on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK, on Anita's behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, a full-service law firm with expertise in commercial law and a strong consumer focus in family, wills and estate, personal injury law and medical negligence.
Efforts to reconcile the popular couple, whose church is one of the biggest denominations in Nigeria and has branches all over world, have failed. They have two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn. Oyakhilome is the president of Believers' Love World Inc, the registered name of the Christian ministry, while his wife is the vice-president.
The pastor, according to an elder of the church, has denied allegations of adultery and believes his wife is being influenced by "bad friends" who are intent on destroying their home. While Anita believes she has been relegated in the scheme of things in the church, her husband has reportedly accused her of trying to usurp power and authority above her seniors in the ministry.
Sources told TheCable that the pastor had been making efforts to avoid divorce in the hope that the wife would eventually have a change of mind. However, TheCable can also report that the decree nissi was served on the charismatic pastor in his hotel room during a recent visit to the UK. Decree nissi, in legal terms, is like a yellow card in a football match which is a precursor to a red card ("decree absolute") if no new evidence is provided to stall proceedings. Church insiders said Oyakhilome had been hoping for rapprochement, but he was left with no option than to receive the papers when the lawyers cornered him at his hotel in London. The decree absolute, which will effectively end the marriage, is expected to be issued soon while terms of the divorce will be worked out by the lawyers on both sides.
Hmmm, wetin dey happen o. So now, christains don dey divorce and to talk, a whole big man of God. No be my mouth una go hear say chicken grow bear-bear.
Cardholders can use it for depositing funds ,withdrawals, getting social benefits and making payments for goods and services at any location accepting MasterCard worldwide.

So as the card dey fit withdraw, make the put our share of national cake for the card.

Babalola Felix fell into the Lagoon as he was running to avoid being arrested by the NSCDC officials. The incident happened last week Monday afternoon.This occured when the NSCDC men had invaded the area to rid it of hoodlums.Confusion had resulted as people in the area fled in different directions on sighting the security operatives. Babalola, who was also running, fell into the water after he slipped.
According to Punch,Eyewitnesses said efforts to rescue him were resisted by the NSCDC officials, who threatened to kill anyone who ventured near the scene.The victim was said to have drowned after one of the officials pointed a gun at him to prevent him from coming out.
When our correspondent visited the area on Wednesday, he saw an eyewitness, who said she did not make statements at the police station because she feared she would be detained.Despite entreaties by relatives of the deceased to make her change her stance, she declined, saying the police were arresting people who witnessed the incident.But she agreed to speak with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity.She said,
"I sell herbs and on that day, I was around and saw everything.Around 1pm, NSCDC men drove into this place. The brother (Babalola) ran like others through a side of the bridge, but he slipped and fell into the Lagoon.Iya Peter (a trader in the area) started shouting, 'this person no sabi swim o, make una come help am o' (this man cannot swim, please help him).One of the officials replied, 'e no sabi swim, na hin e enter water, if he wan die, make hin die there' (he cannot swim yet he jumped into the water, if he wants to die, let him die).The brother begged them to rescue him, but they mocked and left him.A dumb man working with LAWMA, also wanted to help him, but they beat him up.The brother made attempt to come out, but one of the NSCDC officials went to the place and pointed a gun at him that if he came out of the water, he would shoot and kill him."
Punch spoke with the dumb man who attempted saving the victim.Although he could not verbalise his expression, he gesticulated to our correspondent how he was manhandled when he appealed to the NSCDC men to allow him save the victim.
Our correspondent learnt that Babalola's remains floated on the water two days after the incident.
It was also gathered that policemen from the Zone 2 Police Headquarters, Onikan, arrested the NSCDC officials, but later released them.The official who led the three-man team was identified as Inspector Oladele Orijah.
The younger sister of the deceased, Ajoke, said she had sold recharge cards under the bridge before she gained admission into the Kwara State College of Health Technology.
"I was contacted on the telephone by some traders around the place who said I should come down.They did not want to break the news to me initially until I pressed them to talk.
The NSCDC men prevented my brother from getting help. It was a tragedy that could have been avoided."
The deceased's aged mother passed out after hearing that her son was dead.She was said to be in a hospital in the state.Our correspondent learnt that Babalola had planned to foot his mother's eye surgery before his life was cut short.
The victim's widow, Oluwaremilekun, said,
"My husband suffered till death. He struggled to send himself to school. He finished and couldn't secure a job. His uncle assisted him with funds to start the recharge cards business. But they have killed him.I am now a widow. He is irreplaceable. He married me properly; did court wedding, traditional wedding and church wedding. What will happen now? I am a widow for life."
Lagos-based human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, told our correspondent in his Ikeja office that justice must be given to the Felix family.
, "This is a case that should not be handled carelessly. The system reduced a graduate of the University of Lagos to a vendor selling recharge cards in town.
"In an attempt to chase him from the street, he was chased into the Lagoon by a law enforcement officer who was supposed to protect his life.
"To allow him to get drowned is worse. Those who tried to save him were scared away by the same official. It is a tragedy that should attract severe punishment under the law.
"We have taken over the matter and we will sue the appropriate agencies of government to make sure the family is compensated. He has left a wife and two kids. We will not allow them to become beggars on the street of Lagos. We will invoke the criminal jurisdiction of the state to get the officer fished out with a view to getting him to face the full wrath of the law."
Hm, see wetin unemployment cause don cause eh. So na so graduate endhim life.

The Argentina international sealed a British-record £57.9 million transfer to Old Trafford on Tuesday, shortly before the Red Devils were thumped 4-0 in the League Cup by third-tier MK Dons.
Van Gaal is excited about deploying his new man all across midfield but urges patience from fans expecting big things from their marquee signing.
The Dutchman told Sky Sports after the match: "[Di Maria] shall contribute very much in our way of playing. He is also a creative player. I can change the system with Di Maria because he can also play on the wing and in midfield.
"I think that he can contribute and that's very important but we don't have to expect that from tomorrow. He has to adapt to the culture of England and the Premier League and to the philosophy of Manchester United."
The Argentine winger, who will wear the Red Devils' famous No.7 shirt, recorded the biggest goal haul of his career last season with 11 strikes in all competitions for Madrid.
So after Man U don loss like 15 matches na him Di maria time go reach. Abeg, Di Maria must perform, £56 million nobe joke or him go return change to Man U.
"I can't place my fingers on when the supposed "beef "started but one thing I know is that, there is no problem between Genevieve and I . We did not have any issue or problem whatsoever. We are not enemies, neither are we friends. We are colleagues, a senior one at that, we greet each other when we see; it is not like we visit each other at home."
"I acted a movie , Anchor Baby, the director (Lonzo Nzekwe) of the movie granted an interview and said Omoni Oboli is the best actress in Nigeria. Some bloggers lashed on it and said Omoni Oboli is better than Genevieve and Omotola."
"The next thing was that people started writing about a supposed 'beef 'with her. I cannot get the reason they didn't write about beef with Omotola. In my opinion, someone somewhere was just being mischievous. I have absolutely no problem with her, and I believe she has no problem with me."
No forget say people been talk of recent say dress wey Omoni wear gopremiere ofher new movie for Aso Rock get as e be. Them come dey ask weather she been wan make presido eye comot.
