Robbers Attack Anglican Church Secretariat In Akure, Kill Bursar Returning From Bank ..RIP Gabriel Abiodun
Pictured above is Mr Gabriel Abiodun, the Anglican Busar killed by some robbers in Akure around 9:30 am yesterday.
The bursar attached to the Akure Anglican Diocese Secretariat, Alagbaka, Akure, has been reportedly killed.
The deceased, identified as Gabriel Abiodun, was shot dead yesterday by gunmen suspected to be robbers, who were said to have trailed him after leaving a branch of Guaranty Trust bank at Alagbaka area of the city.
An eyewitness, who was on the scene, said Abiodun was trailed from the bank by the three gunmen to the church where they rained bullets on him.
“The man (bursar) had just returned from one of the new generation banks to withdraw N500,000, which we learnt was probably meant for retirees.
“The robbers trailed him because of the money and shot him in the thigh.
“I think they struggled with the bursar for the money, snatched it, shot him before running away.”
A source from the diocesan secretariat confirmed the attack, noting that the church had invited the police for investigation.
The source said:
“It is true. The man in charge of the church’s finance was shot dead this morning (yesterday) around 9:30 am on the premises of the diocese.
“The police have been invited to the premises and they have removed the body. It was a sad moment for us.”
