Abdul-Hamid Egele, Chairman of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), has died.
SP Kontongs Bello, spokesman for the Edo Police Command, confirmed the death to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
When they were assaulted by gunmen Monday evening, the dead was driving Egele’s backup car.
After gunmen halted his motorcade and murdered his driver, Egele was kidnapped near his Jattu house.
They also opened fire on the second driver as well as a security guard.
According to authorities, the surviving driver died as a result of bullet wounds.
“I got the news that the driver of the second vehicle, who was severely injured in the attack, is dead. The chairman’s family has yet to be contacted.
“We hope that the bush-combing exercise will lead to the rescue of the victim and arrest of his abductors,” Bello said.
Egele, a.k.a Baba Petrol, was taken at about 7pm by the gang who drove in two unmarked vehicles.
