The family of a civil servant, Abiodun Adenuga, has said 11 bullets were removed from his body after he was shot by masked gunmen.
Abiodun had been traced by the gunmen to Sindende Guest House in the Agege Area of Lagos State where he lodged on October 6.
The assailants robbed him of his phones and office documents in the operation that also affected staff of the guest house.
He was later rushed to the Surgical and Emergency Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, after he was shot by the gunmen in the chest.
His sister, Adebisi who called on the Lagos State Police Command to track down the gunmen, said her brother died days after a surgery saw the removal of 11 bullets from his body.
Adebisi said, “The owner of the hotel informed us about the incident around 8.30am on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. He said he had an accident, but on getting to LASUTH, we realised that he was shot and rushed there around 2.35am.
“We were told that the armed robbers invaded the hotel around 1.30am, broke into his room and while trying to get his office bag, they shot him. Other victims said they rushed out of their rooms when they heard gunshots, and that they were also robbed.
“My brother was the only one that was shot, and they went away with his phone and office bag. We don’t know the kind of documents that were in the bag.
“About 11 bullets were removed from his chest and after the operation, he came round two days later. But on Friday, he went into a coma and since then, he never regained consciousness. He died around 9.35am on Monday after several efforts to resuscitate him proved abortive.”
