Gunmen in military camouflage have killed a business man who deals in oil, Femi Oso, at Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.
PREMIUM TIMES gathered that Mr Oso was killed at his filling station, Osofem Oil and Gas, at NITEL bus stop at around 10 p.m. on Sunday.
A nephew of the deceased, who identified himself as Harbee, told journalists in Abeokuta that the men were all wearing military camouflage.
He said they came into the filling station, shot the deceased in the head, and left with his car with the plate number, EKY903GZ.
