Tragedy struck in the Tanke area of Ilorin when an aged couple who are said to be pensioners in their late 80’s were attacked by heavily armed bandits numbering up to three.
According to the report by Vanguard, the bandits severally shot the couple and thereafter macheted them to death in their living room, after they demanded money, valuable items and their car key.
The report says the bandits later tied the lifeless bodies of the couple together and dumped them inside the well in the compound.
Reports say the security guard who was supposed to be on duty at the time of the attack but was no where to be found was later arrested by the police and is currently being interrogated following the ugly incident.
However, spokesman for the Kwara State Police Command, Mr. Ajayi Okasanmi who confirmed the incident, has assured all of their safety while noting that there was no need to fear as police officers are combat ready to ensure safety.
“It is true, we still don’t know who did it and whether they were armed robbers or assassins because it was a man that came to the police to report that they had an aged couple living within the premises but they could not be found but after seeing the traces of blood, from their section of the house, it led to a well.” Ajayi said.
Continuing, he added that; “The police came and after searching the area, the corpses were found inside the well so we called the fire service department and they came to recover the corpses which have now been deposited at the mortuary at UITH.
“We don’t know whether they were robbers or assassins but they went away with a Toyota Camry belonging to the couple. We are still investigating to unravel the mystery but we would like to assure the public that the criminals would not escape the long arm of the law.”
