Gunmen kidnap two poultry farmers

Two poultry farmers and another man have been kidnapped in Egbeda community, Kabba in Kogi West Senatorial District. The three were abducted at two different locations within the community on Wednesday.Our correspondent gathered that two of the abductees, Olorunpomi Damilola, a staff of the College of Education(Technical) Kabba, and Pastor Mayowa Otitolaye are partners in a poultry farm business.

However, the identity of the third abductee is still unknown. 

It was gathered that the gun-wielding men shot sporadically to scare away onlookers and kidnapped their victims behind the Christ Apostolic Church, Egbeda-Kabba.

A stakeholder, who wished to remain anonymous, pointed out the need to engage the services of an indigenous security squad to help in securing the community but also lamented the lack of mobilisation.

He said that other neighbouring communities in Okun land have already taken to this precautionary measure to forestall such insecurities of lives and property, reiterating the need to do the same in the entire Kabba land as many men of shady characters have infiltrated the surrounding forest.

One Yomi Obalore opined that the entire Ikowaopa, a suburb of Kabba seems to be under the control of non-indigenes and there is the need for everyone to be circumspect.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP William Aya, who confirmed the incident, said that the District Police Officer in charge of the area informed the command around 9:00 pm on Wednesday.

He said that officers and men have teamed up with the local vigilantes and other security agencies to hunt the kidnappers.

“Our men are combing the bush at the moment and we are optimistic they the abducted victims would be rescued while the kidnappers will be apprehended,” Aya said.
