Unknown Gunmen Kill Vigilante Leader In Kogi

Unknown gunmen, on Sunday, killed the Vigilante Group Chairman of Egume community in Dekina local government area of Kogi state at Efakwu-Egume. According to family sources, the vigilante boss, Attah Isah, his assailants who had been trailing his movements later confronted him at the front of his house at Efakwu area in Egume at about 8.00pm. It was gathered that late Attah had earlier in the day gone to some home branch Executive officers of Egume Ome Descendants Union to inquire on an incident that led to an invitation extended to him by security agents at Anyigba in Dekina local government area. The incident, according to reliable sources, was sequel to some allegations on the late chairman’s mediating roles between the community and herdsmen who have been causing havoc on the people’s farms in the area. The unknown gunmen were said to have opened fire on Attah at a close range and killed him instantly while he was relaxing in front of his house. Before his friends and family could run out after the gunmen, the assailants had gone on a standby motorcycle. It would be recalled that the former chairman of vigilante group in Egume, Mallam Attah Wada, was assassinated while praying in front of his house at Egume on the 27th May 2014 at about 6.30pm. In the same vein, the Amana- Attah of Ojikpadala-Egume, Chief Isah Edime, the pioneer General Manager of Radio Kogi and the former producer of “Democracy in Action” in the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) was also kidnapped from his house and assassinated the same day Mallam Attah Wada was murdered.  Since that time, no arrest was made in connection with those incidents by either the police or any law enforcement agents in the state.
