Gunmen on Tuesday killed one person and abducted two others including a former United States soldier, Major Jide Ijadare, at Ijan Ekiti, Gbonyin local government area of Ekiti State.
Eyewitnesses said gunmen invaded Ijadare’ s palm oil-producing factory located along the road and shot dead a staff before whisking the ex-army officer and another person off to an unknown destination.
“They shot one of the staff of the factory and killed him. They, thereafter, dragged Major Ijadare and the other staff into the car and zoomed off,” the eyewitness said.
The state police command also confirmed the incident.
