Ondo State Police Command on Saturday said three people have been arrested in connection with the alleged killing of a female banker, Nofisat Adetutu Ibrahim, who was shot dead last Wednesday.

Ibrahim was shot dead by some hoodlums who traced her to a Point of Sales kiosk in Oke Ogba area of Akure, Ondo state capital.

The Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Mr Femi Joseph said detectives from the command had been drafted to unravel those behind the killing of the 29year-old banker.

The remains of the slain banker have been laid to rest in her Ikare Akoko home town according to Islamic rites

Hoodlums suspected to be armed robbers killed the banker last Wednesday night while trying to escape from the shop.

The armed men tried to strangulate the young lady before she escaped and she was shot in the process.

An eyewitness said, ” The lady was in the shop when the bandits came on a motorcycle and pretended to do business with her.”

“As they were trying to strangulate her, she attempted to run out of the shop while one the robbers shot her.”

The incident happened less than 24 hours after a middle-aged worker of a publishing company was shot dead in a night robbery at the Ajipowo/Ogundipe Estate in Akure.
