Some gunmen have reportedly killed a retired principal and the Lay President of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Mr Christopher Karigidi, in Igbobini Diocese, Irele Local Government of Ondo State.
Karigidi was killed in the early morning of Monday by the unknown gunmen who invaded his home in Ode Irele.
It was, however, not clear if hoodlums who killed Karigidi were assassins or armed robbers as some witnesses claimed the hoodlums left without taking anything from his home.
It was gathered that the killers invaded the deceased’s house at about 3 am on Monday and carried out the dastardly act.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Mr Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident and said the command had commenced an investigation into the killing.
“We have begun an investigation into the matter and we will soon arrest those behind the ungodly acts,” Joseph stated.
He added that the remains of the deceased had been deposited at the morgue.
