He was later evacuated by policemen from the Ologede police station and taken to the morgue of the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti.

A source at the scene of the incident said, “The deceased was in his car when the vehicle conveying the gunmen hit the car from the back at that spot. The deceased then alighted from the car to complain over the reckless driving, not knowing they were assassins. The bandits opened fire on him and he died immediately. The killers then sped away.”

Men of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), who had reported for work at the park, fled the environment to avoid indiscriminate arrest by the police.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti command, Deputy Superintendent Caleb Ikechukwu, confirmed the incident.

The police spokesman said, “We have got a report about the killing and our men have swung into action. We are yet to know the identity of the deceased, but investigation has begun into the killing.”
