Police Public Relations Officer of Taraba Command, DSP David Misal, confirmed the incident at Jalingo Federal Medical Centre Mortuary.

Hon. Salihu Dovo, the Council Chairman of Ardo-kola local government area of Taraba, has been killed by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.

The council boss’ nephew, Timothy Aminu, who attempted to obstruct his abduction was also killed in the attack on Sunday.

Police Public Relations Officer of Taraba Command, DSP David Misal, confirmed the incident to The Nation at Jalingo Federal Medical Centre Mortuary.

He said the gunmen invaded the deceased’s residence located at the Sabon-Gari area of Jalingo at about 1am on Sunday, shooting sporadically for over 30 minutes before abducting the council boss.

He said Dovo was dragged by the gunmen, who headed towards the River Lamurde, the border between Jalingo and Ardo-Kola local government areas.

According to the PPRO, local vigilantes and police trailed the gunmen, who shot the victim on noticing they could not escape with him.

He said the gunmen dumped his corpse in Nahuta village across the river Lamurde boundary between Ardo-Kola and Jalingo council areas.

The PPRO further confirmed Aminu, who attempted to block the roads to prevent abduction of the council boss, was also killed.

The police spokesman said arrests have been made over the incident.

“We have made some arrests and I can assure you that the killers of the council boss and his nephew would be brought to book,” he assured.

The remains of the council boss and his nephew have been deposited at Federal Medical Centre Mortuary Jalingo.
