Two fleeing gunmen on Monday sent a farmer, identified simply as Joshua, on errand to buy cigarettes and wine for them in Bukpe village in Kwali Area Council of the FCT.

Our correspondent who visited Bukpe on Tuesday gathered from a resident who preferred anonymity that the gunmen were from fleeing from an onslaught by a team of policemen and vigilantes who stormed their dens in Sadauna and Odulo forests and freed over 70 abducted victims last week.

 He explained that the two gunmen appeared on a farm near Bukpe village, met the farmer and gave him money to go and buy cigarettes and wine for them.

 He further said, “The man abandoned his work and rode his motorcycle to this village and bought cigarettes and wine for them. When we asked him whether they were carrying guns, he said yes.”

When our reporter visited the Village Head, Alhaji Hussaini Shamdozhi, he also confirmed the incident, saying, “I think the man didn’t know they were gunmen, because when he returned from the farm, I invited him here and he told me that he diden’t know they were gunmen.”

 He added that, “I believe the gunmen may not want to come into the village because some of my subjects may identify them.”
