Gunmen kill banker who was account officer to Ex-militants at Ahoada.
Adewale Adesanya was a Senior banker at Yenogoa,Bayelsa state and also was an account officer to many of the ex-militants on the payroll of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).
The 39-year-old man,who hailed from Ijebu Ode,Ogun state, was killed by unidentified gunmen on Saturday who shot at him repeatedly until he died.
Adesanya was said to be driving to Port Harcourt in the company of two others when the gunmen attacked him near the NNPC filling station ,near Okobe on the ever busy East-West road.
He lost control of the vehicle , skidded into the bush, but the gunmen kept on shooting at the car.
The two men in the car with him escaped into the bush as the gunmen were still coming towards the car. Unfortunately,Adesanya could not make it out fast and the gunmen reached him and repeatedly shot him till he died.
According to one of the men in the car,(Samson who later arrived Yenagoa,) one of the gunmen said, “finish him up” and “offload him”,
A team of policemen from the Ahoada-East Area Command arrived later at the scene of the incident to remove the corpse and the car.
