A corper serving in Imo state has been reportedly shot dead at Oghara in Delta State by a suspected cultist in front of his apartment.
The deceased, identified as Mr Toriseju was said to have returned from Imo to his rented apartment in Oghara, where he has been staying as a student of Western Delta before going out to celebrate with friends when the unidentified gunman caught up with him.
According to reports, the corper was outside that night, checking his phone when the gunman suddenly emerged and shot him thrice. He then took the corper’s mobile phone, removed the sim card and memory card before destroying the phone and disappearing into the night.
The teenager, who was with him at the time, hid underneath a car parked close by. All efforts to reach the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, were futile as calls to his phone were not going through.
However, a police source confirmed the story in Oghara and added that “his parents reported the case to us and Toju’s body has been deposited in the morgue.”
