Iliyasu Muhammad Hassan, a resident of Jos North LGA of Plateau State, has explained how a kidnapper killed his colleague when they stormed his house to abduct his wife.

Our Correspondent reports that the incident occurred at about 11pm on Monday, along Ring Road when the family were sleeping.

Hassan, who is receiving treatment at the Jos University Teaching Hospital after sustaining a gunshot injury, told this newspaper that when the kidnappers forcefully opened the door, they asked for money, and that he told them that there was no money, adding that they told him that since there was no money they would go with his wife, a move that he said would not be possible.

He said: “When the kidnappers decided to go with my wife, a thought came to my mind that these kidnappers would always do the same and succeed and nobody is doing anything to them.

“Anytime they go to kidnap, they do it freely without anybody saying anything to them.

“They do it without resistance.

“I further had another thought that if they went with her, I wouldn’t know what they would do to her and how I would cope with the children?

“From there, I moved to the front of my wife and said she would not go with them.

“The kidnappers were two, and unexpectedly I held one who was dragging her and we started fighting; for more than 30 minutes.

“The other one, who was holding a gun, shot at me but the bullet went to my mouth and came out through the lower jaw.

“In an attempt to shoot me for a second time, he shot his colleague on the stomach, and realising that he had killed him, he fled and left him there.”

Nafisa Muhammad, the wife of the victim, while explaining how the incident occurred, said she would live to remember her husband and would never forget the sacrifice he did for her, calling on other people to emulate his doggedness.

Palpable fear has taken over residents of Delta North following the infiltration of members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who went on a rampage in different locations of the Igbo speaking senatorial zone during the 3- day sit at home order which ended on Wednesday.

Two Dangote trucks were fully loaded with cement, the driver of one of the trucks was killed, and one tricycle burnt while one Audi Volkswagen car was damaged when the group struck at the outskirts of Asaba on Wednesday.

The suspected IPOB elements had at about 7 am reportedly blocked the Ugbolu/Illah Road at Mile 5, shooting indiscriminately.

Road users and residents of the area fled into the bush for fear of being hit by stray bullets.

Nigerian Tribune reports that a superintendent of police was on Tuesday gunned down at Nsukwa junction and several motorists have seriously injured along Ogwashi Uku — Ughelli expressway.

Gunmen suspected to be IPOB members were said to have mounted a roadblock, interrogated commuters and injured some who could not give satisfactory answers.

The gunmen had earlier on Monday swooped on Bonsac area of Asaba shooting sporadically until they were chased away by the police.

Meanwhile, the state police command said it was fully on the ground to contain the excesses of the group.

The Police commissioner in the state, Ari Mohammed Ali on Wednesday told newsmen that his men on receiving the information on the attack on Ugbolu were mobilized adding the hoodlums ran away ” even as we combed round the community bush”

He lamented the killing of the Dangote driver and the burning of the trucks.

“They asked the truck driver to come down from the vehicle, they asked him whether he was not aware of the sit-at-home order before he was shot.

“Others ran into the bush and later found their way to the police station in Ugbolu”

Ali warned the group to confine themselves to the east, advising residents in the state to go about their legitimate duties as the command will not renege in providing adequate security.
