The state Police Public Relations Officer, Suleiman Nguroje, said of the incident, “A certain house was attacked by unknown gunmen who killed a vigilante and went away with two persons.”
He added that Police Commissioner Olugbenga Adeyanju had directed men and officers of the state command to get after the gunmen and ensure the release of the two abducted people.
