A statement by Mr Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Education Officer, disclosed that the two personnel were ambushed by the gunmen after Zariagi on Lokoja – Okene road.

He said that the incident happened at Oshawa, a town close to Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.

The kidnappers, according to first information report, were said to have opened fire at the sight of the marked vehicle and unfortunately shot the driver in the head, killing him instantly.

“The vehicle subsequently lost control and veered off the road.

“It took hours before the rescue team could locate the vehicle in the bush and evacuate the victims,” he said.
