Mr. Gabriel Abiodun, a bursary of the Akure Anglican Church Diocese in Ondo State, Mr. Gabriel has been gunned dead by suspected assailants.

Abiodun was shot dead by gunmen, who were said to have followed him after leaving the banking premises of one of the new generation banks in Akure, the state capital, where he went to make transaction.

An eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity, said the deceased was trailed down to the church by three men armed with guns and opened fire on him.

According to him: “The man (bursar) had just returned from one of the new generation banks to withdraw money, which we learnt was probably meant for retirees.

“It was that money, which is about N500,000, that the three gunmen trailed him down to the church diocese and he was shot in the thigh.

“I think the armed robbers struggled the money with him, collected it and ran away from the premises,” he said.

Another source confirmed the attack on the bursar, disclosing that the church authority had invited police to the scene for investigations.

“It is true, the man in charge of the church’s finance was shot dead this morning (Thursday) around 9:30 a.m. inside the premises of the diocese.

“The church has invited the police to the premises and they have taken his corpse away. It was just a sad incident for us this morning,” he said.

Meanwhile, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Femi Joseph, has also confirmed the incident, saying: “Yes, it is true the man was shot but we are now investigating the case and his body had been evacuated
