The police command in Ondo State has declared that the death of four people in the Sabo axis of Ondo town, capital of Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State, was not a retaliatory assault.
The assassination of the four people was not linked to the previous Sunday's attack at Saint Francis Catholic Church, Owo, the capital of the state's Owo Local Government Area, according to a statement released by the police on Thursday.
The homicide in Ondo town, according to the command's public relations officer, SP Funmi Odunlami, was a robbery attack.
During the heist, Odunlami revealed that a J5 vehicle with the plate number MKA – 469 YJ was attacked while transporting onions and potatoes from Zaria to Ore.
She added that in the process, the robbers shot the driver, while the motorboy escaped with a bullet injury.
The PPRO added that a motorcyclist alongside the pillion and a passerby were also hit by stray bullets.
“Investigation has since commenced and effort is ongoing to arrest the assailants.
On this note, the Commissioner of Police, Ondo State Command, CP Oyeyemi Adesoye Oyediran, psc, fsi, urged the people of the State to remain calm and disregard the fake news, as the rumour mongers are out to stir unnecessary chaos and disrupt the peace of the State,” he said.
