Friends and family are mourning the demise of Ebenezer Ayeni, a gospel music producer reportedly killed by armed robbers in Oyo State.
Naija News learnt that the gospeller was attacked and shot at in Ibadan, Oyo state capital on Thursday, June 10.
A friend of the deceased who disclosed the incident on his social media account said Ayeni was killed just a week to be joined with his lover.
It was gathered that Ayeni was attacked while resting at his home. He is said to have survived the gunshot and was rushed to the University College Hospital Ibadan and another private hospital but was rejected as the hospital staff allegedly demanded a police report before they could treat his gunshot injury.
He, however, died hours later in the pool of his own blood, Naija News learnt. His body has since been deposited in the morgue.
Expressing his sadness on the sudden death of his friend, one MC ShayorComedian took to his Facebook page and wrote:
