“Actually, they missed their target when they came to kidnap a member of the community because the man was not at home,” he explained.

He said from the movement of the invaders, it was suspected that they came for a particular target, but got enraged when they could not find their target.

Usman stated that the sound of the gunshots threw the entire community into pandemonium, affirming that he saw three persons with bullet wounds lying on the ground after the gunmen had left.

“The victims were taken to a clinic at Lokogoma village in Nasarawa State,” he added.

Confirming the incident, the Special Adviser on Media to the Council Chairman, Mr Haruna Usman, said the chairman had visited the community to sympathise with the people.
