Armed robbers have reportedly shot dead a cashier, identified only as Genesis, in the Ilupeju area of Lagos State.
It was gathered that the victim Genesis, who was a cashier with a plastics company in the Ilupeju Industrial Estate, was shot dead last Wednesday August 3rd, while he was heading for a bank with his colleagues’ salaries.
He was reportedly shot three times by the gunmen, who also injured the company’s driver.
However, the matter was reported at the Ilupeju Police Division which removed Genesis’ corpse.
A source in the company said the robbers could actually not take away the money with the cashier before they escaped.
“The incident happened in the morning. The news came as a shock to all of us. The deceased is in his early 30s. He was on an assignment to pay the salaries of the workers when he and the driver were attacked. The money with them was not taken.”
SP Dolapo Badmos, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer reportedly confirmed the incident. She said,
“The case is under investigation. No suspect has been arrested yet. The exact place of attack on the victim is unknown.”
