Suspected arsonists have set fire on Titolu Venture Filling Station in Igoba, Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The station manager, Ajisafe Oluwatobiloba, told newsmen that a security guard in the station was also killed.
He said, “At about 4am, I was called by one of the residents, and on getting here, we saw the station burning; we called the fire service and they came to quench the fire, not knowing the perpetrators had killed our security guard.
“While trying to figure out what could have caused the fire, we saw where the guard was tied and killed.
“We also saw the keg used by the arsonist filled with petrol which part of it must have been used to wet the station before setting it on fire.”
Spokesperson for the state Police Command, Mrs Funmi Odunlami, said investigation is ongoing on the incident.
