The two suspected armed robbers, according to further investigation, followed Taoreed closely to the spot, before descending on him to dispossess him of the money
At the scene of the incident, bloodstains on some parts of road, indicated that Taoreed crawled to the side of the road where passersby sought for medical attention to save his life
An eyewitness who spoke with newsmen said the victim was attended to on the spot by the lawmaker representing Ibadan Southwest constituency 1, Yusuff Adebisi.
It was further learnt that the victim was rushed to Adeoyo Hospital where he was confirmed dead and the body deposited in the hospital’s mortuary
When contacted on telephone, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, said he was yet to confirm the incident, noting that he was at an official assignment to monitor the ongoing recruitment exercise by the police.
