According to eyewitnesses, the gunmen emerged from the bush and started shooting sporadically, killing the police orderly in order to gain access to their victim and fled into the bush afterwards.

Reports state that the Police arrived later to evacuate the corpse to the mortuary.

A source in the community said the local vigilantes were currently combing the bushes in the area in search of the abducted expatriate.

When contacted, the state Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Kongtons Bello, said he was yet to be briefed on the issue and promised to give an update later.
