The victim was reportedly on duty alongside his colleagues at OGD Estate Asero, Abeokuta, when the incident happened.
The Police Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the trouble started on Monday, when one of the suspects, Okiki Mulero, who is a commercial cyclist, was denied entrance into the estate for carrying more than one passenger contrary to the rule of the estate.
“This infuriated him and he called his two brothers, Micheal and Joseph Mulero, who came to the scene and they jointly attacked the two security guards with planks. In the process, one of the security men by the name Segun Godfrey Barde was hit with a plank and he slumped.
“He was subsequently taken to O&A Hospital where he died on Friday, 25th December, 2020, while receiving treatment,” he said.
