Gunmen suspected to be hired assassins have gunned down a well-known businessman in Ondo State.
The businessman, named as Charles Adenikinju, was shot dead at his residence along Ife Road, Ondo town, in the state.
The bandits broke into the house at midnight and killed him.
A neighbour, who refused to disclose his identity, said he sighted the hoodlums but could not recognize any of them because it was dark.
He said, “We are still shocked about the killing of Adenikinju by the hoodlums who broke into his house around midnight.
“They shot him in the stomach and he died immediately. It is sad and we have called on the police to investigate this.”
Police Public Relations Officer in Ondo State, Mr Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident when contacted by our correspondent.
He said that the case has been reported to the police and investigation has begun in earnest.
