On Thursday, an unidentified motorcyclist was shot dead by gunmen at the new Adeoyo Hospital Road in the Fodasis area of Ibadan.
According to NAN, the man’s corpse was lying on the ground, by the roadside shortly after their correspondent visited the scene. They reported that the man was shot on the chest at about 5:40 a.m. by some unknown gunmen, after snatching his motorcycle.
An eyewitness, who preferred to be anonymous, told NAN that the gunmen were already on their way after snatching the man’s motorcycle but they turned back and shot him when he raised alarm. He also said: “I believe the man was not a commercial motorcyclist because of the way he was dressed. He was probably on his way to work.”
NAN reported that a police patrol team took the corpse to the Adeoyo Hospital morgue.
Public Relations Officer for Oyo State Police, SP Adekunle Ajisebutu, told NAN that he had yet to be briefed on the incident.
