Oso Femi, a businessman who owns Osofem Oil and Gas at Nitel bus stop, Ifo, Ogun State, has been gunned down by gunmen in military uniforms.

The incident was said to have occurred around 10 pm on Sunday when Femi was about to leave the filling station. He was shot in his head and his Toyota Corolla car, containing a huge sum of money, was taken away.

The car, according to a report, was later found abandoned at the Obada Oko area of Abeokuta, the state capital.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, said the incident was a case of armed robbery.

According to him, the robbers in military uniform must have got a hint that the man was with a certain amount of money, which he said was driven away in his car after killing him.

“It’s a case of armed robbery and the command is investigating it. We learnt they came in military uniform and they killed the man.

“I think there was information about the man that he was coming with some amount of money. So, they took away the vehicle with the money inside it. We are still investigating the incident,” Oyeyemi said.
