“Brother Toyin went to the Computer Village to buy phone in the morning and later he went to the mechanic workshop to repair his vehicle. He just returned from the mechanic workshop, when the gunmen came again.

“When he came, they started shooting and went down the road. When they were coming back, they stopped at where Brother Toyin and others were sitting.

“Four of the people who were with Brother Toyin escaped. The hoodlums caught the other four and started harrasing them. Three others escaped, leaving only Brother Toyin.

“They slapped him (the deceased) repeatedly before they shot him. I heard one of the gunmen asking others not to waste the bullet, saying that they still have other things to do with the bullet.”

This newspaper gathered that police officers from Area ‘G’ have cordoned off the area, and the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID).
