Ebenezer Ayeni, a gospel music producer based in Ibadan, Oyo State capital has been reportedly killed by armed robbers.
Reports made available to newsmen revealed that the assailants stormed Ayeni’s residence at night on Thursday and shot at him. The gospeller is said to have survived the gunshot for some hours but eventually died after he was rejected at two separate hospitals.
TrillerTunes understands that Ayeni’s wedding is just a week away before the incident. A friend of the deceased who disclosed the incident on his social media account said Ayeni 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.
His body has since been deposited in the morgue.
Mourning the demise of the Man of God as he is fondly called by friends, a friend shared:
