Popular trado-medical practitioner, Alhaji Fatai Yusuf popularly known as Oko Oloyun was possibly killed because of a fraud he detected in his Lagos office, the Police stated on Friday.
He was killed on Thursday when his convoy was attacked on the Igbo-Ora-Eruwa road by gunmen.
The attackers reportedly shot at his convoy from thick forest, resulting to his death from injuries sustained from the bullet.
A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, informed the fraud was possibly responsible for the fire incident in the office during which some account records were destroyed.
The statement reads: “The report of Yusuf’s death was received by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Igbo-Ora that the two-car convoy of the deceased was allegedly ambushed shortly after passing through five different police stop and search teams along Igbo-Ora road by yet-to-be-identified assailants who fired at the moving vehicles on the road from the thick forest.
