He said: “Yesterday (Thursday), a certain house was attacked by unknown gunmen who killed a vigilante and went away with two persons from the residence.

He said: “Our people got to the residence at about 4:00 a.m. to halt the gunmen’s operations. At that material time what mattered to them was to rescue the two persons that were abducted by the gunmen and not who owns the house.”

Nguroje said the state’s Commissioner of Police, Olugbenga Adeyanju, has directed policemen to go after the gunmen and rescue the two abducted persons.
