An officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Ekiti State, Sunday Afolabi, has been shot dead by unknown gunmen in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
An insider in Ekiti Command of NSCDC who craved anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the matter alleged that Afolabi was killed by his assailants along Afao Road at about 3:30pm on Wednesday. But the state police command said Afolabi was killed by suspected “cult boys.” His body was deposited at the mortuary by some policemen who visited the scene after the killing.
NSCDC spokesman, Tolu Afolabi confirmed the killing to reporters yesterday. He said investigation has been launched into the incident in a bid to unmask the killers of the officer.
