Two corps members serving in the Mikang Local Government Area of Plateau State were on Thursday kidnapped by gunmen. Sources said the corpers were on their way to buy some drugs in a nearby pharmacy in Zomo community of the LGA when the gunmen whisked them away.
A resident of the community, Silas Christopher, told our correspondent about the incident on Friday. He said one of the victims identified as Obinna Hailary managed to escape, as the abductors dragged them into the bush.
Christopher said, “They were two corpers. It happened in the evening. Suddenly, some gunmen numbering about four emerged from a bush and abducted them.”
The spokesman for the state police command, Alabo Alfred, also confirmed the incident, saying security operatives were working to rescue the corper.
