A generator repairer, Ayodeji Adesegun, aka Solution, has been allegedly killed by a local security guard in the Ijebu Igbo area of Ogun State. The 24-year-old had gone to seek payment for a debt owed him by a woman who produced ponmo (cow hide) at the Odose Badejo area.
He was alleged to have parked his motorcycle by the roadside where the woman spread some of her wares.
The Ogun State indigene was leaving the area when he was allegedly accosted by the guard, who accused him of riding on the ponmo.
In the argument that ensued, the victim was allegedly shot in the chest.

Our correspondent learnt that policemen from the Ijebu Igbo division prevented a breakdown of law and order in the area as a mob attempted to lynch the suspect.
“There was confusion everywhere and people tried to mob the security man, but we stopped them. We called the police from the Ijebu Igbo division and their timely response saved the day. The policemen took the corpse away and they returned the following day to the area to make some arrests.”
The deceased’s wife, Mosunmola, who was in her mother’s house, said the victim was coming to visit her when he was killed.
She said, “We have a child together already and I am four months pregnant. I was sick and he said he would come to see me and give me some money to go to a hospital. He was a few houses to my place when he was shot dead by the guard. I am so confused I don’t know what to do. Please help me to get justice.”
