In a shocking incident, a 42-year-old man named Dele Agboola was tragically shot dead by unidentified assailants in Ada, Osun State. The incident occurred on Thursday, around 8:40 p.m., leaving the community in shock and mourning.

Reports indicate that the assailants, numbering three, posed as customers visiting the medicine shop belonging to Agboola’s wife, located in the Pako Area of Ada. The unsuspecting victim had already left the shop and returned to his residence. However, a few minutes later, he returned to the shop to retrieve his mobile phone charger.

It was during this brief return that the three men approached Dele Agboola, confirming his identity before fatally shooting him. Following the attack, the assailants swiftly fled the scene, leaving residents in panic as they scattered to avoid any further violence.
