THE Chairman of Bunu Hunters in Suku community, Kabba-Bunu Local Government  Area  of Kogi State, Caleb Oshe, and his son, Sunday,  were killed by gunmen in the early hours of Tuesday.

Our correspondent  learnt  that the  gunmen  broke into  their  home  in Suku at about 3am  and opened fire on  the duo.

Oshe’s  daughter Kemi, who was at home  when the gunmen invaded the house, said  the gangsters demanded  money  from her father, who  was also the chairman of the  vigilance group  in Suku,  immediately  they  forced their way in.

 

 Kemi also said the gunmen removed some items from her shop.

She said the hoodlums  attacked her father with machetes before  shooting him.

Governor Yahaya Bello condemned the killing of the hunter and his  son, telling the  security agencies to arrest those who killed them.

Bello spoke in a statement by  his Director-General of Media and Publicity to the Governor, Kingsley Fanwo.

He said, “I have sworn to protect life and property. It is therefore unacceptable to us as a people for anyone to murder our citizens. Every life is important to us and we will stop at nothing to unmask  the masterminds of the heinous crime.”

Following the tension created by the incident in the community, and reports that herdsmen killed Oshe and his son,  governor warned against reprisals.

 He added, “It is too early to attribute the killing to anyone and no one should take the  law into their own  hands. The late Caleb Oshe was not only the head of the vigilance group in Suku, he was  also the person responsible for logging activities in the community.

“Given the centrality of Suku community to the politics and economy of the area, we have no choice but  to allow the  security agencies  to launch a full-scale investigation into the circumstances leading to the crime.”

The  Speaker of the  House of Assembly Matthew Kolawole  also condemned  the killing in his constituency – Kabba/Bunu.

He said the security situation in the country had become  worrisome, hence there  was   a need for  the people  to be involved in the fight to have a crime-free society.
