 He disclosed that the incident occurred around 6 pm on Sunday.

 “On Sunday, October 23, 2022, at about 6 pm, Mr Aondona Saai and Mr Avalumun Ukerchia Adaa all of Tse-Igbur in Ukemberagya of Ukemberagya/Tswarev Council ward of Logo LGA were murdered at Tse Ikem on the road near Anawah settlement between Chembe and Anyiin road,” the community leader said.

 Chairman of Logo LGA, Salome Tor, who confirmed that three people were killed, noted that the first incident involving a young man happened on Friday while the remaining two persons were killed on Sunday.

 “On Sunday at about 5 pm, two men on a motorcycle with a lady were ambushed by those who butchered them. They (gunmen) left the woman and she ran into the bush, so that was how we were able to know what happened.

 “There have been selected killings of people and the target is the men not women per se… we have a high patrol of security agencies. Even on Friday, they killed one young man and burnt his motorcycle,” she told our correspondent on the telephone.

 Contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Catherine Anene, said she was yet to receive the report of the incident.
