The gunmen stormed the victim’s residence at about 12:30 a.m., shot at him before abducting two of his children- a boy and a girl, the police said.

Gunmen on Sunday, killed Zakari Kigbu, a former Federal Commissioner of National Population Commission (NPC) at his residence in Azuba community near Lafia, Nasarawa State capital.

Ramhan Nansel, the police spokesman in Nasarawa, confirmed the incident in Lafia.

According to Mr Nansel, the gunmen stormed the victim’s residence at about 12:30 a.m., shot at him before abducting two of his children- a boy and a girl.

The police immediately deployed personnel comprising the anti kidnapping unit and Police Mobile Force to the scene, upon learning of this attack, Mr Nansel said.

The spokesman said police commissioner Adesina Souemi had also visited the scene for on-the-spot assessment and to condole with the family.

He said the police would not rest on their oars to ensure that the abducted children were rescued unhurt.

“The police will carry out a comprehensive investigation to unravel, arrest and prosecute those behind the dastardly act,” Mr Nansel said.

The spokesman, therefore, called on members of the public to avail the police with useful information that could lead to the rescue of the abducted victims and arrest of the perpetrators.

Mr Kigbu was a former National President, Eggon Cultural and Development Association (ECDA).
