A farmer, identified as Dele, in Ajowa Akoko, Akoko North-West Local Government Area of Ondo State has been attacked by yet to be identified gunmen, who killed two of his children and kidnapped two others.
NewsWireNGR gathered that the gunmen had invaded the town in the early hours of Thursday and headed for the residence of a cattle herder in the community; Yinka Oludotun.
Due to the intervention of security forces, they could not access Oludotun’s residence so they left instead for Dele’s home, a source who spoke anonymously said.
“It was after the bandits could not succeed in kidnapping Yinka that they left for the house of Dele to kill his two sons and kidnap his other two children,” the source said.
Confirming the report, the spokesman of the state police command, Tee-Leo Ikoro, said security agents were already on the trail of the bandits.
NewsWireNGR also learned that men of the state Amotekun Corps were already combing the Ajowa Akoko forest to apprehend the criminals.
