Police, hunters rescue 40 kidnap victims

Armed robbers raided the popular Abdullahi Supermarket in One Man Village, near Mararaba, on Tuesday evening, killing four people, including a staff of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.

Daniel Adefemi Okunade, identified by his identity card as CBN personnel, was shot in the head and died instantly.
The other three victims are yet to be identified at the time of filing his report.

According to eyewitnesses, the robbery lasted less than two minutes, during which the CBN staff, who is also the choir master of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) in One Man Village, was gunned down.

He was said to have stopped at the supermarket to buy bread for his family when the robbers broke into the always-crowded supermarket and killed four customers.

However, the robbers did not touch his Toyota Venza car parked outside the supermarket.
The mood in the vicinity remained tense at the time of this report as customers continued to flock into the supermarket to identify the robbery victims.

Meanwhile, officers from the New Nyayan Divisional Police Station have transferred the victims’ bodies to the Mararaba Medical Center mortuary in Mararaba.

At the time of filing this report, no information has yet been made public by the police on the incident.

However, sympathizers, including church members, have been trooping to the house of the late CBN staff to sympathize with his family.
