The robbers carted away millions of naira in the process.
The incident, Daily Trust gathered, happened on Tuesday afternoon at Lajorin Street opposite Excellence Citizens Bar not far from the state High Court in Ilorin.
The robbers, who reportedly wielded A-K 47 rifles, had trailed the victim, said to be around 60 years to the spot.
