Men of Okehi Local Government Professional Hunters killed a suspected kidnapper around 5.23am on Tuesday, June 29.
It was gathered that the kidnapper was gunned down while attempting to collect ransom in Abobo village in Okehi Local Government Council of Kogi state.
According to reports, the three-man kidnap gang came from a hideout around Abobo area, behind Itakpe, metres from the highway.
One of them was killed instantly while the other two sustained injuries managed to escape after the hunters engaged the gang in a gun duel.
The hunters eventually rescued the victims held captive in the area and reportedly combed the forest for fleeing kidnappers.
The corpse of the slain man and a gun recovered have been handed over to the DPO in charge of Okehi division, Mr Ovanja Yakubu, for further investigation.
