Aborode was allegedly killed in his farm along Apodun road, Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of the state on Friday.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, confirmed the incident in a text message sent to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Ibadan.

The PPRO confirmed that the deceased, who was the Chief Executive Officer of Kunfayakun Green Treasures Limited, was robbed and shot by four unknown gunmen at about 5.50 p.m.

“At about 1750 hrs of 11/12/2020, along Apodun road Igangan, one Alh Fatal Aborode ‘m’ of Igangan, was robbed and shot by four unknown gunmen.

“The victim was rushed to Olugbon hospital, Igboora where he was confirmed dead. Effort is on to arrest the fleeing assailants,’’ the statement read in part.

NAN gathered that the deceased, along with his manager, was attacked when they were returning home. But the manager escaped gunshots as he reportedly fled the scene when the gunmen attacked.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a traditional ruler in Akure, Oba Samuel Fadahunsi, was hospitalised after gunmen suspected to have been hired attacked his palace and set it ablaze.
