Unknown gunmen whisked a man away after the assailants attacked his car while entering his house on Auchi, Edo state.
It was gathered that the gunmen killed two aides of the victim during the attack.
Salemgists learnt that the victim is the Edo State chairman of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association Nigeria, Abdulhamid Baba-Saliu.
The story was shared on social media by a Nigerian lawyer, Abdul Mahmud who said the victim is his brother-in-law.
Posting a video showing the security aide after they were killed, Abdul wrote;
”I’ve been screaming about insecurity in our country. Spoken about it on TV and on spaces here. Today, I called a friend to rejoice with him on the release of his brother by kidnappers. This evening, my brother inlaw was kidnapped. His driver and security personnel killed.
Ordinary citizens are increasingly becoming the victims of our irresponsible state. Saturday, we spoke about this when I called to commiserate with him on the death of his uncle. He told me that Etsako is facing a trio of evil: (1) Bandits (2) kidnappers; (3) Yahoo ritualists
Sad, he has become a victim of the insecurity in our country. While we are doing all we can to secure his freedom and the freedoms of those taken with him, we ask for your prayer.”
