The gunmen were reported to have ambushed the victims around Ceplast Industry and Iperu junction axis.

A victim in a viral audio video narrated how the suspected gunmen stopped vehicles and marched some into a thick bush.

“This incident happened at past five in the evening, they were armed to the teeth with A.K 47 rifles shooting heavily. They even killed one person who was inside a Lexus car. So, they marched about seven of us inside the bush and when I saw that they were speaking Hausa, I started speaking Hausa to them begging them not to kill me, so they asked if I was a northerner but I said no, that I have once lived in Kebbi and Sokoto.

“They kept taking us further inside the bush, later they asked if I was having any money, so I gave them the N103,000 and my phone. There was another driver from the East who said that the kidnappers had collected N120,000 from him just as we were abducted. They later set the two of us free while the other five people abducted were still with them,” the victim narrated.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the State, SP Omolola Odutola, confirmed the incident.
