The parent of Toritseju Lodge a member of the National Youth service corps, NYSC expressed their sorrow as their son was killed by gunmen at Oghara in Delta State on Monday.

According to a family member, who chose to be anonymous, it was alleged that gunmen killed Toritseju. He said  “he was standing outside that night with a teenager at about 11 pm, checking his phone when the gunmen appeared and shot him thrice.

They took his mobile phone, removed the Sim and memory cards before disappearing into thin air.”

He added that all effort to reach the state public relation officer of the police DSP Andrew Aniamaka was futile as his phone line was not available.

The victim is said to be a graduate from one of the universities in Oghara. His parent stays in Sapele, but he rented an apartment in Oghara. He returned from Imo where he was serving to his rented apartment to celebrate Easter with his friends when he was murdered.

In response, a source from the police confirms the story and added that his parents reported the case to the police and his body has been taken to the morgue.
