A 61-year-old estate agent, identified as Sina Babarinde, was on Sunday shot dead during a church service at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Living Word Parish, Basin Road, Ilorin.

The incident, it was gathered, happened during the 7:00 am church service of the parish. The deceased was said to have gone outside the church during the service to receive a phone call when gunmen shot him on the head at close range. The motive for the killing was not clear as of press time last night.

Police spokesman in Kwara, Okasanmi Ajayi, who confirmed the incident on Monday night, said investigation was ongoing to arrest the perpetrators.

“He was called on the phone during the service. As he walked out of the church to receive the call, the sound of gunshots rented the air, which drew the attention of the congregation.

“As at the time the congregation got out of the church to see what was happening, it was discovered that the estate agent was already in the pool of blood”, Okasanmi added.

“The shells of the bullet used in killing the deceased have been recovered and the corpse has been deposited at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for postmortem,” he added.
