ARMED ATTACK

 


KOGI STATE

Fifteen travelers were abducted by bandits
along Kogi highway during a 2-hour operation.

At least fifteen passengers traveling from Abuja to Anyigba, Kogi State have been kidnapped along Itobe-Ochadamu Road in the state.

A source said the armed men blocked the vehicle, ordered the passengers out and took them into a nearby bush.

It was learnt that the kidnappers operated for over two hours unchallenged along the axis as calls to police authorities in Lokoja, the state capital, proved abortive.

The source added that residents of several communities in the state are now living in fear as their areas have become a safe haven for bandits and kidnappers.

The crisis of kidnapping and banditry has worsened in recent years with many residents lamenting that it has also affected business and economic activities.

Confirming the incident, a Facebook user, Gabriel Onuche Adaji, on Thursday morning said the “kidnappers already called one of the victim (sic) family but yet to make a demand”.

In his earlier post, Adaji wrote, “The Anyigba driver I gave the phone to deliver to Anyigba for me yesterday was truly attacked along Òchadamu by kidnappers and some passengers
numbering about 6 people are still missing

“Families of the passengers are here with me at zuba park looking for their family members

“This is too sad. God.”

PLATEAU STATE

Gunmen kill two IDPs, injure three others
in Plateau community.

Armed men on Wednesday afternoon attacked and killed two internally displaced persons who were rebuilding their homes at Rantis, Gashish District, Barkin Ladi local government area
of Plateau State.

Apart from killing the duo, three others were injured and a vehicle belonging to one of the deceased was razed.

It would be recalled that community effort at rebuilding and returning the IDPs has been ongoing and this incident would be a setback to the desire of the people to return to their
ancestral homes.

Rwang Tengwong, the National Publicity Secretary of the Berom Youth Movement, BYM, who confirmed the incident in Jos, explained, “On Wednesday, 06/04/2022, gunmen suspected to be
Fulani militants attacked Internally Displaced Persons at Rantis where they are rebuilding their homes, killing two persons. The gunmen numbering six came on three motorcycles and shot sporadically at the IDPs at about 3:40 pm when the IDPs had completed work
for the day and were about to leave the site.

“As a result of the incident, two persons, Dalyop Boyi and Gyang Jugu were killed while three persons, Pastor Samson Boyi, Dahwul Jam, and Pam Boyi sustained gunshot injuries. A
Volkswagon Vento belonging to one of the deceased, Dalyop Boyi was also burnt down by the attackers. It would be recalled that over 200 persons were killed, property worth millions of naira destroyed and over 17,000 people displaced in June 2018 when some
communities in Barkin Ladi and Riyom Local Government Areas were attacked.
