They also bolted with an unspecified amount of money belonging to the victim. The area where the incident happened has witnessed recent robberies.

Asokwa Divisional Police Commander ACP Charles Dormaban, who confirmed the incident to XYZ News, said the police had begun investigations into the matter.

“He is one of these wayside fuel dealers, who had made a wooden structure just by the road close to the fuel station. In fact there was no door to the main entrance and his room had no lock. The robbers had easy access to him and shot him, they followed it up with beating using cutlasses and sticks.

“We had information and the police rushed to the place and combed the whole area. We have got some information, so we are following and doing our investigation to get them arrested.”
