So-called bandits have killed 13 family members in an early morning attack on Wednesday in Agudu, in the Kogi/Kotonkarfe Local Government Area of Kogi State.
One other person was also killed, while six others were wounded.
The state Commissioner of Police, Ede Ayuba, disclosed this to journalists in a chat.
The CP said, “A man and 12 family members were killed. His son is the only survivor. Another person was killed, while those injured have been taken to the hospital.”
Ayuba further announced the arrest of the killers of the late Innocent Ofodile, owner of popular Chuck’s Supermarket in Lokoja, who was murdered on Lokoja-Abuja Road.
One Vincent Omogor, who was arrested for kidnapping, confessed that he and his gang members were responsible for the killing of Offodile, he said.
According to the CP the gang carried out the killing “on the order of one of his shop attendants, who complained of not being attended to when he approached him for financial assistance when his father died.”
