Gunmen kill one, kidnap two in Plateau community 

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers on Tuesday night killed a man in Furaka community, Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau state.

Residents who confirmed the incident to The PUNCH in Jos on Wednesday said the gunmen also kidnapped a lady and another man before making their escape.

A resident of the community, Madaki Gottom, said “Some armed men came to our community on Tuesday around 8 pm. They invaded the Furaka Community near Tina Junction in Jos Jarawa Ward in Jos North.

“Unfortunately, Mr Aaron Danji was shot and killed while Antipas Gabriel and a 20-year-old lady were taken to an unknown destination. Since then, we have not seen any of those taken away.”

The Spokesman for the State Police Command, Alabo Alfred, described the incident as a case of kidnapping and not a fresh attack by gunmen in the community.

“We are aware of the incident. It is not a case of another attack on the community but a kidnap incident and we are already investigating it,” the PPRO said.
