Again, gunmen attack Nasarawa community, kill one, abduct two children
Some gunmen have killed one Alhaji Kankau and abducted two of his children in Agwada, Kokona Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
The incident came less than 24 hours after the Nasarawa State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress was kidnapped and murdered by gunmen.
Our correspondent gathered that Kankau’s house was invaded by no fewer than 12 gunmen, who shot sporadically into the air to scare off residents.
An eyewitness told our correspondent on Monday that the incident happened around 2am on Sunday.
According to the eyewitness, the gunmen also murdered one of Kankau’s sons and injured two of his wives, who had to be rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi for treatment.
The Executive Chairman of Kokona Local Government Area, Mr Saidu Kurki, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on the phone. Punch
