…Hunters trail kidnappers

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have
killed a Jalingo-based Imam known as Mallam Gambo and one other person
between Sibre and Jauro Yinu near Jalingo.

The gunmen it was gathered also abducted occupants of a vehicle and took them into the bush.

However, our correspondent gathered that hunters went after the suspected kidnappers on Tuesday.

One
of the hunters who participated in the operation told our correspondent
that many of the kidnappers were wounded in the attack and some of
their bases in the bush destroyed.

An eyewitness, who escaped the
attack on Sunday night told journalists in Jalingo on Wednesday that
the gunmen had blocked the road and were firing at vehicles coming from
both directions.

The eyewitness who pleaded anonymity told our
correspondent that he was stopped by some villagers close to the scene
and informed that some gunmen had blocked the road.

“Some of us were lucky because the villagers alerted us that gunmen blocked the road.

“Later
we were informed that the gunmen took some people inside the bush but
they were rescued by a team of police that came to the scene.

“For those killed, it was learnt that they attempted to fight the kidnappers and were gunned down,” he said.

Taraba
State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP David Misal confirmed that
two persons were killed and seven persons rescued by the police.

Our
correspondent reports that the kidnapped Transport Officer of Taraba
Government House, Mr. Danlami Yunana is still being held by the
kidnappers who have allegedly taken over the surrounding bushes around
the Jalingo Airport.
