The Ondo State Police Command on Tuesday gave an insight into how a naval officer, one Mr Akingbohunmi attached to the Navy Secondary School in Imeri, Ido-Ani was killed on Monday.
Ido-Ani is located in Ose local government area of Ondo State.
Police spokesperson, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, who confirmed the incident said, a 6-man mob led by one Mr Oyibo led the onslaught against the deceased naval officer.
Mrs Odunlami-Omisanya disclosed that the news of the death of the naval officer was reported by a friend of the deceased, one Sunday Olaoluwa of Iyayu Quarters in Ido-Ani.
The Police image maker also noted that due to an altercation that arose from a minor motorcycle-pedestrian accident, the suspects who are now at large used iron and plank to beat the victim.
The victim was taken to the General Hospital in Ido-Ani where he was confirmed dead.
Meanwhile, Ido-Ani is currently a ghost town as residents reportedly fled after naval officers besiege the town, apparently in search of the suspects.
