In the Agbudu community in Koton-Karfe local government Area of Kogi State, some unknown Gunmen attacked the community killing 14 people and injuring six others.
According to a report from News Agency of Nigeria, the commissioner of police, Ede Ayuba said:
“This morning around 2 am, my Area Commander called me to report that he received information that there was an attack on the Agbudu community.
“I called the SSA on Security of the Local Government in Koton-Karfe and I said that before I get there, he should mobilize his vigilante men to assist the police – the DPO and the Area Commander in the area – for them to assess the place and see what assistance they could render.”
The commissioner stated that he later went to the scene of the incident;
“I was there and I was part of those who picked some of the dead bodies we are talking about.”
“Yes, 14 people were killed and about six others were fatally injured. The saddening thing is that out of the 14 dead bodies that were brought out, 13 were from one family.
“In that family, it is only one person that survived. His uncle, his mother, his uncle’s wife, his younger brother, his senior brother’s wife, his wife and all his children were killed,”
