According to a witness, Olujimi had lost so much blood before help came his way.

“He was going to the station to resume duty this morning (Sunday) when the incident happened. We met him in a pool of blood and quickly called the station.

“He was not dead when we found him and rushed him to an undisclosed hospital. Robbers have invaded this town and I think the police should step up strategies to bring these culprits to book.” The witness said.

DSP Oluwole Ojo, the Okitipupa Divisional Police Officer, revealed that he could not comment on the matter as he had not been properly briefed by officers under his command.
