Residents of PPL community in Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State were yesterday, thrown into mourning after some men in hood murdered a staff of Globacoms Telecommunication, Adekanmi Adaramola.
Late Adaramola who was in his 30s, was found in the pool of his own blood at PPL Bus stop along Lagos-Badagry expressway, at about 6am. He was said to have gone to check on someone before resuming for the day’s job at the office.
When Vanguard visited the scene, pallets of the bullets shot at the father of one were sighted on the ground, with some parts of mutilated body.
An eyewitness told Vanguard that the deceased was receiving a phone call when the assailants shot him at close range.
Late Adaramola’s widow, Patience, told Vanguard that she had no clue as to why the perpetrators decided to attack her husband.
Narrating her last moments with her late husband, she said in tears: “My husband left home early today (yesterday) to see someone before his office resumption hour. He worked with Glo network. I do not know why these men decided to kill him.
“ When the news filtered in, we were told that a man was attacked by gunmen. I uttered a word of prayer for God to spare the life of the victim, without an inkling that it would turn out to be my husband”, she said in tears .
When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bala Elkana, confirmed the incident, saying investigations had begun to unravel the perpetrators.
Elkana said: “He was receiving a phone call when the men attacked and killed him. We do not know the reason for the act. Some eyewitness said that it was an issue between different cult groups but we do not want to believe such.
“We received the complaint and investigation has commenced; though we are yet to make any arrest. But we can assure the public that circumstances surrounding his death will be unraveled.”
