Hoodlums Kill FRSC Officer Trying To Rescue Attacked Victims In Ondo

Hoodlums have shot dead an officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Sunday Omiwoye, in Ondo State, while the deceased was trying to rescue a man who was being mobbed by the hoodlums.
The wife of the deceased, Mrs Bunmi Sunday, who disclosed the incident, said it happened on Sunday night while she and her husband were visiting a family friend at the Agbala area of Ondo.

He said, “My husband and I went to see one of his friends that stays on the same street with us. Suddenly, some men ran towards where we were standing by the gate. My husband was trying to park his motorcycle then. So, two gunmen came on a bike and started beating the boy that ran to us.
“My husband challenged them. But they warned him that they were not there for him and that he should go inside the gate. I went in immediately, but my husband was still outside standing by his motorcycle.
“Later, we heard a gunshot. So, I ran out of the gate and saw my husband on the floor in a pool of his own blood. The gunmen ran away with his phone and motorcycle key.”
It was gathered that the corpse of the deceased had been deposited at the State Specialist Hospital morgue in Ondo for autopsy.
All efforts to speak with the state Police Public Relations Officer, Funmilayo Odunlami, proved abortive as she did not take her calls and the message sent to her was not replied as of the time of filing this report.
