According to a social media user, Ono Okeh who shared the story, an Okada rider was killed in front of her office gate in Delta State on Wednesday, May 4. The victim's body was found in the pool of his blood and is suspected to have been killed because of his brand new motorcycle. "In as much as I hate to share such sickening news these days, this is just too close for comfort. I quite understand the location of my work place is a bit quiet and bushy but for a man to be murdered and yet no one within or outside the premise witnessed the incident and probably raised alarm breaks my heart." She wrote.
"The identity of the man is yet to be known but someone did say he’s from the neighbouring town. And he was killed because of his motor cycle which was taken from the scene of the incident by his killers. I gathered that his son just bought the motor cycle for him. The assumption is that; he might have struggled with his killers whose intent was to rob him of the motor cycle. The resultant struggle was him being stabbed from the back.
"It’s sickening to think about the rate at which people are being murdered and there’s need to be vigilante in prayers for the safety of everyone in this country. Imagine while we were busy with our daily routine, someone was been killed. May his soul rest in peace", she added.
