Daily Newswatch Assistant Editor Shot By Robbers Survives Attack

| On 02, Feb 2014

An assistant editor of the Daily Newswatch Newspapers, Mr. Toyin Obadina, was in the early hours of yesterday attacked by armed robbers on his way home from work.

The assistant editor of the Saturday title, who escaped death by the whiskers, was attacked along the Itoikin-Old Ijebu-Ode Road, at about 1:00 a.m., while driving to his residence in Parafa area of Ikorodu, Lagos.

It was gathered that Obadina was waylaid by the robbers, who double-crossed him with two Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) while driving in his Toyota Yaris car.

He was shot despite giving them his full cooperation by giving everything they requested.

According to his wife, Mrs. Abiola Obadina, the thieves had collected all he had on him before shooting him twice in the stomach.

“When they stopped him, he gave them all the money that he had on him. The thieves double-crossed him when he was coming from work. They were riding in two jeeps, and they collected everything he had on him, but one of them shot him in the belly when they were done with him. He is currently responding to treatment,” she narrated.

Following the incident, Obadina underwent a medical surgery at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, which was successful. He is now recuperating.
