The hunters  also rescued two victims from the the kidnapers namely Mallam Sanni Uwaiti and Ramatu Tukur, both of toll gate area along Okene and Ajoakuta area.

“We shall leave no stone unturned in a bid to rid Okehi LGA and our environs of all forms of criminality,”  the Executive Chairman of the local government area, Ohiare, said.

The operation followed an earlier directive by the state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, to the Chairman of the LGA to make the area safe following the attack on divisional police headquarter last week, where an inspector on duty was killed.

Ohiare appreciated the governor  for choosing security of life and properties of Kogi citizen as his top notch priority.
