Hundeyin said;

“He was guarding a bank but the incident didn’t happen at the bank; he had left and was going somewhere inside a tricycle.

“He actually hired the tricycle and was the only passenger. He was attacked, shot and his service pistol taken away. It happened in the afternoon around 3pm. He later died in the night. Nobody has been arrested but efforts are on to that end.”
