“There was confusion here that night. The driver was coming from Mile 12 and going inward Ikorodu. When he got to Thomas bus stop, the Camry, which had been trailing the bus, waylaid it. Four men came out of the car and entered the vehicle through the back door.“They brought out their target and stabbed him in the neck and chest. When they were sure he was dead, they entered their car and drove away. There was a lot of blood on the road.”
“But he could not make it. They were told he was dead,” he added.
A source said, “It was the same night that the corpse was taken to the mortuary. After the family members were contacted, they said they were not interested in pursuing a case. They said the police could carry on with investigations, but they wanted to bury their corpse in accordance with Islamic rites.“The following morning when the wife of the man showed up, she was not aware he was dead.“So, the police just told her that he had an accident and he was receiving treatment at a hospital. The family took her away to break the news to her.”
The source said, “That same Camry carried out a similar operation three weeks back and a resident was killed.“The man that was killed that time and this man, lived in Ikorodu. The manner of their death suggested it had something to do with cultism.“It is also probable that there was someone in that bus giving information to the guys in the Camry on the movement of the bus and that was why they were able to double cross them at that point.”
She said, “From the report we have, the four men waylaid the vehicle and entered the bus. They stabbed the man to death.
“We visited, examined and photographed the scene before depositing the corpse at the Ikorodu General Hospital morgue. Investigations are ongoing and very soon, we will get the culprits.
