Heavily armed gunmen numbering about six invaded a wedding reception in the Abule-Egba area of Lagos on Saturday and shot one of the female guest after dispossessing the other guests present of their valuables. It was gathered that the armed men, who stormed the venue with a bus, also robbed the wedding rings of the bride and groom.
The unfortunate incident occurred about 6:45pm when some of the invited guests have started leaving the reception venue. Men of the Nigeria Police didn’t arrive the event centre until the guys finished their operation and drove off.
A source said the female guest was shot because she tried to run away from the scene when the armed robbers ordered every body present to lay face down.
No arrest has been made as the Police are claiming that the owners of the event centre never reported to the station that they have such business in the area.
