Two siblings have been abducted by gunmen in Ogori in Ogori/Magogo Local Government Area of Kogi State.
During the attack, their elder brother, Taiye Edason, was killed.
It was gathered that the unfortunate incident happened along the Ogori-Ososo road while Edason and his brothers were on their way to Igarra in Edo State to visit their mother on Monday, October 2, 2023.
According to Akpata Bayo, a close friend of the family, the hoodlums intercepted their motorcycle and whisked the victim and his brothers into the bush.
“They took them to the bush and tied them to a tree. Their abductors later freed them to go. As they were running away, the kidnappers opened fire on them. In the process, the bullets hit Edason; he fell down and died,” Bayo told Daily Trust.
'Unfortunately, when the youths of the town got wind of the incident and entered the bush to trail his abductors, they met Edason’s mutilated body.”
Bayo added that two suspects had been arrested in connection with the incident.
Meanwhile, the deceased father of four will be buried on Friday, October 6, 2023.
