A sad report as in Ado Ekiti, the State capital, on Wednesday night. A young trader, Olanrewaju Oladapo, was allegedly shot dead by some unknown gunmen.
The incident happened at around 9:45pm, yesterday after the young trader who sold recharge cards and provisions, had closed his shop and was going home. Reports have it that he was ambushed by these gunmen, who were armed with dangerous weapons and guns.
A confirmed source said that these gunmen had traced the young trader to his house which was behind Jone Jane Hospital, Dalimore, Ado Ekiti, where he was ambushed and killed at the main entrance. The miscreants also made away with his valuables. The source also mentioned that the trader had been robbed many times before.
The fact that the young man had just packed into the apartment some months ago after he allegedly felt unsafe in his former department tells that surely the trader had something on his tail.
The police has however, confirmed this tragic incident and noted that the deceased has been deposited in the mortuary. They also said that they have set to work to investigate the murder of the young man.
