The station’s manager, Ajisafe Oluwatobiloba who said he got notified about the fire incident around 4 am today, couldn’t trace anyone responsible for the act.
According to him, “at about 4 am, I was called by one of the residents, and on getting here, we saw the station burning, we called the fire service and they came to quench the fire not knowing the perpetrators had killed our security guard”
“While trying to figure out what could have caused the fire, we saw where the guard was tied and killed.
We also saw the keg used by the arsonist filled with petrol which part of it must have been used to wet the station before setting it on fire” Oluwatobiloba added.
It was gathered that men of the Nigerian police force had deposited the guard’s body in a mortuary.
When contacted, the Police image maker in the state who confirmed the incident said investigation is ongoing to unravel the circumstances that led to the incident.
