unknown gunmen have murdered a pensioner and his wife in a compound around Fate area of Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
The assailants reportedly shot the yet-to-be-identified couple many times before tying and dumping their bodies in a well.
The Kwara Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the attack and the death of the victims.
He said the corpses of the victims had been deposited at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital.
“The police came and after searching the area, the corpses were found inside the well so we called the fire service department and they came to recover the corpses which have now been deposited at the mortuary at UITH.
“We don’t know whether they were robbers or assassins but they went away with a Toyota Camry belonging to the couple. We are still investigating to unravel the mystery but we would like to assure the public that the criminals would not escape the long arms of the law.”
