The News Agency of Nigeria learnt that the NSCDC operative, Mr. Rawlings Osagie, was shot dead at his residence when he returned home from work late on Monday.

A younger brother of the deceased, Mr. Aghatise Osagie, who confirmed the development, told NAN that Rawlings was shot in the stomach by the gunmen.

He said that Rawlings, an assistant superintendent in the NSCDC, died at a hospital where he was rushed to after the shooting. It was learnt that a four-man gang had laid siege on Rawlings’ home, firing him as he made to open the gate to his house at Ugbor area of Benin.

In a related development, three men, one of whom was an auto mechanic, were also shot dead at Omokharo Street, Off Siluko Road in Benin on Monday.

Two of the victims were said to have brought their vehicle to the mechanic for repairs when the three men met their fate. On July 8, gunmen similarly, killed a staff reporter with the Nigerian Television Authority, Mr. Lawrence Okojie, in Benin.

Okojie was also said to be on his way home from work when he was shot dead around Ogunola area, near Siloko Road in Benin. Reacting to the latest killings, the spokesman for the Police Command in Benin, DSP. Moses Nkombe, said he was yet to be briefed on the killing of the NSCDC officer.

He, however, confirmed the killing of the mechanic and the two others, attributing it to what he described as cult-related issues.
