“They were all in soldier uniform. It happened at Osofem Oil and Gas, Nitel Bus-stop at Ifo, Ogun State, around 10 pm on Sunday. He was about to go home when they came to attack him. He tried to escape and they shot him on the head, took his car and his money, and went away,” the nephew, who identified himself as Harbee, said.

On Wednesday morning, Harbee updated that, “we found the car at Obada Oko. The car was packed in the bush. It’s currently at the police station.”

The Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the incident, saying it is being investigated.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the incident was a case of armed robbery.

According to him, the robbers in military uniform must have got a hint that the man was with a certain amount of money, which he said was driven away in his car after killing him.

“It’s a case of armed robbery and the command is investigating it. We learned they came in military uniform and they killed the man.

“I think there was information about the man that he was coming with some amount of money. So, they took away the vehicle with the money inside it. We are still investigating the incident,” Oyeyemi said in a telephone interview.
