A man identified as Akugbe Ogbidi has been shot dead in Benin City, Edo State, by gunmen suspected to be hired killers.
The victim, an indigene of Obazagbon near Benin city, was at a party in Benin, when he received a telephone call.
He was expected to return to the party, but it was the last time he was seen alive, and calls to his phone were unanswered.
The situation forced his friends to be suspicious and retraced his steps. His remains were found in a bush path around Sapele Road in Benin.
