Some unknown gunmen, in the early hours of Thursday, reportedly killed a yet-to-be-identified motorcyclist at the new Adeoyo Hospital Road in the Fodasis area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The man, DAILY POST gathered, was shot on the chest at about 5:40 a.m. by the assailants after snatching his motorcycle.
His corpse has been deposited at the Adeoyo State Hospital in Ibadan mortuary by a team of policemen from the state police command.
A source in the area told journalists that the gunmen were already on their way after snatching his motorcycle but they returned to shoot at the victim when he raised an alarm.
He added that the gunmen eventually escaped with the motorcycle.
He said, “I believe the man was not a commercial motorcyclist because of the way he dressed. He was probably on his way to work”.
Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, however, said that he had not been briefed about the incident.
