The deceased’s brother, Mr Malo Olorunwa Francis, a staff of Niger Delta Development Company, NDDC, in Okitipupa said a gang of robbers invaded the residence of the victim on Saturday around 9pm.
“They attacked him, shot him on the stomach and carted away the sum of two million naira.
“My brother was a fuel marketer. We rushed him to a private hospital in Igbokoda where he later died during the operation,” he lamented.
Malo said the corpse has been deposited in the morgue at Igbokoda for autopsy.
A police source who confirmed the incident said preliminary investigation is in progress to track down the fleeing suspects, assuring that the perpetrators would be brought to book.
