Two suspected kidnappers have been reportedly killed by hunters in Ofu LGA of Kogi state.

The alleged kidnappers, who were attempting to kidnap commuters along the Ochadamu road, were killed on Wednesday morning when the hunters invaded their hideouts.

Confirming the development, Mohammed Lawal Musa, an official of Ofu LGA, said the kidnappers attempted to kidnap commuters during Easter.

Mohammed said the alleged kidnappers initially engaged in a gun fight with personnel of the Nigerian Navy who arrested two of the criminals.


“After discovering their hideouts in Ochadamu, the hunters ambushed the criminal elements at about 2 am on Wednesday,” he said.

“The suspect who engaged the hunters in a gun duel for over forty minutes had  two of their members gunned down while three escaped with varying degrees of injuries.”

Yahaya Bello, governor of the state, through Onogwu Muhammed, his chief press secretary, commended the synergy of the hunters and security operatives in the state.
