Unknown gunmen have reportedly killed one Ponle Olapade, a commercial motorcyclist popularly known as okada rider and father of five children at Oremeji Agugu area, in Ibadan North East Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Ponle was waylaid by the gunmen around 10pm at the weekend and forced to surrender his motorcycle before life was snuffed out of him.
An eyewitness account revealed that several bullets were pumped into his body, resulting in his death at the University College Hospital, Ibadan.
In an interview with his wife, Mrs Olapade, at their Ayekale residence, Ibadan, FirstNews gathered that the deceased left for work without having any premonition of his death.
According to her, “the gunmen have thrown my family into mourning mood. Where do I start from, with five children? Our first born is just eleven years old.
“My late husband never dreamt of becoming a commercial motorcyclist in life but resign to fate in order to provide for the needs of the family.”
Late Olapade had been buried on the premises of his uncompleted building project in Ibadan.
