Gunmen Kill 6, Raze Houses In Kogi

The police in Kogi State have confirmed that six persons were killed with some houses burnt by unknown gunmen in a Monday morning attack on Bagana community of Omala local government area of the state.

The commissioner of police in Kogi, Idrisu Dabban, confirmed the incident to newsmen after a visit to the area.

Dabban had assured the people that the command, under his watch, would put every necessary machinery in motion to put an end to the frequent communal clashes in the area.

He assured the people that necessary measures would be taken to forestall resurgence of the clashes in the local government.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the attackers had gone straight to the palace of a traditional ruler, Chief Anyebe Salifu, whose stool was classified as third class only a fortnight ago.

According to a witness, Yakubu Salifu, who is also the son of the traditional ruler, the assailants invaded the community at about 7:30 a.m. when most of the youth in the community had gone to the farm, and headed straight to the palace of the traditional ruler.

They were said to have set the palace ablaze and in the process shot and killed three persons, including one Madam Achebe Alih, popularly known as Mama Teacher.
