The proprietor of Austin Pharmacy, Austin Umweni, was on Wednesday killed by a hit-and-run driver on Airport Road, Benin City, while jogging early in the morning.
The driver was said to be driving a Mercedes Benz car when he hit Umweni, who was said to be a keep-fit enthusiast and who usually engaged in early jogging along the route where he was killed.
Then remains of Umweni have been deposited at a morgue in the state capital.
While members of staff of his pharmacy store along Igun Street, were seen discussing the incident in low tones, the family of the deceased were at the state traffic division on Sapele Road, asking the authorities to fish out his killer.
A worker at the pharmacy store lamented the incident and wondered why such fate should befall their boss, whom he described as a compassionate man.
Edo State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Kontongs Bello, who confirmed the incident, added that he was yet to get the full report of the situation.
