Few days after unknown gunmen struck, killing soldiers and setting free about 240 inmates at the prison facility in Kabba, Kogi State, two poultry farmers and another man have been kidnapped in the same community.

Two of the abductees, one Olorunpomi Damilola, a staff of College of Education Technical Kabba; and Pastor Mayowa Otitolaye, are said to be partnering in the running of a poultry farm while the identity of the third abductee was not yet known as of the time of filing in this report.

It was gathered that the gun wielding men shot sporadically to scare away onlookers as they seized their victims at the back of Christ Apostolic Church Egbeda-Kabba.

The Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP William Aya confirmed the incident.

He said the police and local vigilantes are already on the trail of the kidnappers.

A stakeholder who craved anonymity pointed out the need to engage the services of indigenous security squad to help in securing the community but lamented the dearth of mobilization.

He averred that other neighboring communities in Okunland have taken to this precautionary measure to forestall such insecurities of lives and property, reiterating the need to do same in the entire Kabba land, adding that many men of shady characters have infiltrated surrounding forests.

One Yomi Obalore opined that the entire Ikowaopa, a suburb of Kabba, is stylishly under the control of non-indigenes and there is therefore the need for everyone to be circumspect.
