The Benue Police Command has confirmed the death of a businessman,  Mr Felix Toechukwu, after he was shot  by unknown gun men.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO)  in the state, ASP Moses Yamu, who confirmed the killing to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Makurdi,  said Toechukwu was shot by  assailants on Saturday evening.

He said the deceased was robbed at gun point  in his house at the close of business.

Yamu  said that the robbers had  trailed him from his shop to his house at Nyiman where they dispossessed him of cash and other valuables.

He said  the deceased, however, died   on Sunday morning at a private hospital where he was receiving treatment.

The PPRO said the police were yet to establish the motive for the killing but said investigations were in top gear to  bring the killers to book.

He urged  the public to provide  security agencies with   useful information that could lead to the arrest of the  killers.
