BREAKING;13 members of one family wiped out by gunmen

Gunmen on Wednesday invaded Agbudu community in Koton-Karfe Local Government Area of Kogi State, killing 14 persons with six others injured.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Ede Ayuba, confirmed the attack to journalists in Lokoja, the State capital.

According to him, the dead victims include 13 members of the same family and one other person.

“Fourteen people were killed and six people were fatally injured. The sad thing is that out of these 14 dead bodies that were brought out, 13 are from one family,” the Police Commissioner said.


“In that family, it is only one male that survived. His uncle, his mother, his uncle’s wife, his younger brother, his senior brother’s wife, his wife and all his children were killed.”

The CP also said that his men will not relent in their effort to uncover the root of the killings in the zone, adding that the perpetrators of the crime will be caught and arrested.

Ayuba said as soon as he got to know of the situation, he quickly dispatched a team of Police operatives, including the Divisional Police Officer in the area to the community.

He, however, explained that the gunmen fled the area before the arrival of security personnel.
