A member of the vigilante group in the area, who preferred anonymity, confirmed the incident, saying before the vigilantes arrived at the scene, the gunmen had escaped with the victims into the forest.

He further said, “We mobilised more vigilantes to comb the forest down to neighbouring Toto village in Nasarawa State in search of the victims.”

When contacted, the spokesperson of the FCT police command, DSP Adeh Josephine, said the command was not aware of the incident.
