An National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member identified as Adebayo Mukaila, have reportedly been shot dead after being attacked by 2 robbers in Osun State.
The deceased who was reportedly killed yesterday, January 28, was attacked by the robbers while he was riding home on a motorcycle after closing his shop where he sold recharge cards and operated a money transfer business through the Point of Sales (PoS) machine.
Although residents of the community he serves in claimed they heard gunshots by 11pm on the day of the incident, they were reportedly scared to come out to rescue the corps member who was in company of a little girl believed to be his daughter.
According to an eyewitness to The Nation; “Mukaila was attacked after closing his shop around 11.00pm on Tuesday by the hoodlums. They first disposed him of his bag containing cash, PoS machine, recharge cards and bunch of keys before they shot him on the head.”
“The robbers thereafter took flight on their bike after killing him. Mukaila’s daughter, who was with him when the incident happened, cried for help but nobody could come forward initially to rescue him. The sound of the gunshot was too audible but no one could come out of the house.”
NYSC’s spokesperson in the state, Catherine Otemuyiwa confirmed the incident and also revealed that they’ve visited the family of the deceased to condole with them.
