Young Shall Grow Motor boss attacked in Festac, driver&escort killed

The CEO of The Young Shall Grow Motors, Chief Vincent Obianodo, was attacked by suspected assassins on Tuesday night August 27th on 22 Road in Festac Town, Lagos, killing his driver and police escort. He narrowly escaped death.

The multimillionaire businessman was returning home from work on Tuesday night when an SUV double-crossed his vehicle in a lonely area, and some armed men opened fire on Chief Obianodo's car. His orderly who attempted to fire back was killed, his driver who was trying to escape was also killed while Chief Obianodo was shot in the arm.

The shooting attracted the attention of some policemen on patrol in the area who rushed down to the scene and engaged the gunmen in a shoot out, killing two of them.

Chief Obianodo was rushed to the hospital where he is responding to treatment. The Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, who confirmed the incident said it is under investigation.

Can u imagine? A man working hard for his money........ Who is it dat wants dis man dead? It must be one of his business rivals. Thank God d atempt failed. RIP to the orderly and d driver. Their job is a very risky one.
Kudos to the police for taking down 2 of those heartless criminals. I wonder what dey will tell baba God when dey get to heaven and i hope the other criminals that were lucky to escape will go and surrender their lives to Jesus Christ.
I wish u quick recovery sir.

Of what profit shall it be to you that you earn the whole world & lose your soul? Death doesnt tell when or how he's coming, the question to you all who commented on this spot [without the fear of God in your expression] is: 'if you drop dead now, where is your soul going to?' God said that any soul that sinneth shall die... use your tongue to count your teeth. Give your live to Jesus Christ today, repent of your sins and confess Him as your Lord & personal Saviour.
