Edo: Gunmen Kill Police Orderly,Kidnap Expatriate

Gunmen have reportedly kidnapped an unnamed expatriate, and shot his police orderly dead in Edo State. Reports indicate that the kidnap victim is a staff with Hartland construction company in the state. It was gathered that the victim was supervising the construction of the Idegu-Awain road in Etsako West local government when he was kidnapped by the criminals. Eyewitnesses said the gunmen emerged from the bush and started shooting sporadically, killing the police orderly in order to gain access to their victim and fled into the bush afterwards.

It was learned that police officers arrived later to evacuate the corpse to the mortuary. A source in the community said the local vigilantes were currently combing the bushes in the area in search of the abducted expatriate. However, the police spokesman in Edo State, Kongtons Bello, said he was yet to be briefed on the issue.
