From Ahmad Ibrahim, Lokoja
Two Naval officers, one male and one female were shot dead yesterday, along Lokoja-Okene express road, in the central axis of Kogi State.
Our correspondent reliably gathered that the ugly incident occurred around 6 pm in the evening.
This is coming six days after an Army Captain, Abubakar was also killed on the same road while his mother and wife were reportedly kidnapped.
The officers were traveling in a Toyota Sienna bus when they were stopped and the gunmen subsequently opened fire, killing them on the spot.
The state police commissioner, Ayuba Ede who confirmed the incident to our correspondent on phone said he had sent his men to the troubled spot, to know the details of how and when it happened.
“Yes,I heard about it and I have dispatched my men there to bring me the details of how and when it happened”, the Commissioner said.
It could not be immediately ascertained where the deceased military officers were coming from or heading to when the incident happened.
Those sent by the state police commissioner were still being expected as at the time of filing this report.
