Kogi vigilance group yesterday raided a kidnapers’ den, killed two of the criminals and rescued two victims.

Chairman, Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi, Mr Abdulrahaman Ohiare, said this in a statement issued in Lokoja by his special assistant, Mr King Habib.

The rescued victims are Malam Sanni Uwaiti and Ramatu Tukur, both of Toll Gate area, along Okene and Ajoakuta axis.

Arms and ammunitions belonging to the kidnappers were also recovered.

“The gang had been terrorising motorists on Okene-Lokoja road and Okene-Auchi road of Kogi before the operation.
