A gunman has shot dead a young man at a car wash centre located along Sam Ewang Estate, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The suspect alleged that the fuel tanker the man was working with blocked his path.

According to the Premium Times, a witness said the killer brought his Sienna car to the car wash, and on completion of the wash, approached the man to look for the truck driver to remove the fuel tanker from where it was parked.

The petrol tanker, with registration number TTD 456XA with inscription NIPCO, was also brought to the car wash center for washing, and parked opposite the center, awaiting when there would be a parking space.

The‎ driver was said to have taken a stroll within the vicinity when the gunman approached the man sitting inside the truck.

The man, identified as Aro, was said to have tried to calm the suspect down, who subsequently pulled out a gun and shot him at close range resulting in instant death.

The development caused pandemonium at the car wash center, as people took to their heels, while the gunman maneuvered his way and escaped with his car.

When contacted, Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the command was going to commence a forensic investigation into the murder.

“It is true, the Commissioner of Police has ordered that forensic investigation be carried out. He has also directed that homicide section of the state investigation and intelligence department should take over the case for proper investigation with the view of bringing the culprit to justice,” Mr. Oyeyemi stated.
