During a nocturnal gunfight in a wide woodland near the Ekiti-Kwara border, a suspected kidnapper was slain by a joint squad of security agents on Thursday morning.
The accused kidnapper was slain by troops, police, and a local security task force of Fulani extraction dubbed Yan Banga, formed up by the Sarkin Fulani in Ekiti, Adamu Abashe, inside a woodland at Eruku, in Kwara State, according to a source in Ado Ekiti.
The security personnel allegedly set up an ambush for a kidnapping group at the point of payment of a ransom of N2.1 million for a kidnapped Fulani man, then followed them down till they shot the suspect dead.
The body of the alleged kidnapper was exhibited in front of the police headquarters in Ado Ekiti.
The suspect, who was shot dead following a chase through the forest that lasted several kilometers, was part of a gang of kidnappers that had been terrorizing Ekiti State’s Ikole, Ekiti East, and Oye Local Government Areas in recent months.
“From 10 p.m. on Wednesday until about 2 a.m. on Thursday, the combined security forces pursued the robbers within the forest. There were gunfire exchanged.
“The police and military fled at one point, but the Yan Banga task force didn’t give up until they shot the man with an AK 47 rifle.” “A amount of N210,00 was discovered in the dead suspect’s pocket,” he stated.
The Secretary of Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria, Ekiti chapter, Ibrahim Toyin Mumini, suggested that the composition of security forces be expanded as it remains the best way to tackle insecurity in Ekiti.
