Woman shot dead by unknown gunmen on okada in Ibadan

She was apparently followed to the estate by gunmen, who then shot her three times in her Toyota Venza before fleeing the scene.

Before she was shot, she was reportedly on her way back to her estate home.

The strange shooting death of a middle-aged lady in her car on Tuesday night at Providence Estate, Afin Iyanu, off Eleyele-Ologuneru-Ido Road in Ibadan has been the subject of an inquiry by the Oyo State Police Command.

Adewale Osifeso, the state’s police public relations officer, acknowledged the occurrence and stated that an inquiry had started.

According to a witness statement, the woman, whose identity could not be verified at the time of reporting this report, had come by to purchase a tin of oats from a supply shop.

“The gunmen, who might have been trailing her from somewhere, suddenly closed her up and instructed the owner of the car that she hit to move away, saying they (gunmen) have not come for her.

“The woman was forced to move few metres from the provision store with her car and the next thing we heard was three successive gunshots. Later, some people, who went to the spot discovered that she was shot on the neck.

“Later, a patrol van of the Nigeria Police and Amotekun operatives came in their vans, dispersed the sympathisers, who thronged the scene of the incident. After some time, they rushed the woman to the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
