Gunmen kill another POS agent in Ekiti, money stolen

Gunmen kill another POS agent in Ekiti, money stolen

Once more, gunmen opened fire on the teaching hospital road area in Ado Ekiti, killing Alfa Taofeek, a Point of Sale agent.

According to reports, Alfa Taofeek was shot and killed by the gunmen who arrived on a motorbike, and they fled with his money and other belongings.

After dropping his children off at school, Alfa was just starting his business when the men from the underworld attacked, according to a source who wishes to remain anonymous.

At the time this report was submitted, the specifics were still hazy. The police have allegedly brought his remains to the mortuary.

As supporters flocked to the scene, they praised the dead as modest and laid-back and urged the authorities to put an end to these kinds of murders.

Allnews.ng had reported on Tuesday that a similar incident occurred in the State capital's Okesa neighbourhood when attackers on a motorbike shot and killed an Okada ticket seller.

Meanwhile, a man, Ojo Ayegbusi has been sentenced to life imprisonment for raping a 15-year-old girl. He was convicted by an Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday.

The defendant, who committed the offence on November 11, 2020, at Ikole Ekiti, was charged with the offence of rape.

As stated in the charge, “The innocent survivor (victim) of the rape was coming from school when she was accosted by the defendant who lured her into his room and had carnal knowledge of her.

“She could not tell anybody of her nasty experience, but her father found out when the girl was rushed to hospital after she collapsed at home and blood was gushing out of her private parts."

Consequently, the defendant was arrested and arraigned in court.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Ekiti State, Julius Ajibare, said, “The offence of rape is contrary to Section 31(2) of the Child’s Rights Law, Cap.C7, Laws of Ekiti State, 2012.

Ajibare, who prosecuted the case for Ekiti State, called five witnesses and tendered three exhibits in support of his case.

The defendant, who spoke through his counsel, E O. Sunmonu, gave evidence in his defence and called one witness.

In the court judgment, Justice John Adeyeye held that “the prosecution proved the offence of rape against the defendant beyond reasonable doubt.”

The court consequently convicted the defendant and sentenced him to life imprisonment.
