According to the reports, the suspect alleged that the deceased blocked his path with the fuel tanker he was working with.

An eyewitness reportedly disclosed to Daily Post that the suspect brought his Sienna mini bus to the car wash to be cleaned and waxed.

Upon the completion of the wash, the killer reportedly approached one of the workers at the car wash to look for the tanker driver to remove the tanker from where it was parked.

The fuel tanker with registration number TTD 456 XA and inscription NIPCO was also at the car wash center for washing and was parked opposite the centre awaiting its turn.

Daily Post reports that the tanker driver had taken a stroll within the vicinity when the suspect approached the man sitting inside the truck.

According to the reports, the man identified simply as Aro was reportedly pleading with the suspect when he pulled out a gun and shot him at close range.

Aro reportedly died on the spot.

Pandemonium was unleashed in the area and as people took to their heels, the suspect made away with his vehicle.

The Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, has said that the command has commenced forensic investigation into the murder.

“It is true, the Commissioner of Police has ordered that forensic investigation is 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.

May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.
