Police in Central Nigeria have yet to comment on the murder of a local businessman, Mr. Kayode Wale in Jos, the capital of Plateau State last Friday.
Gunmen believed to be kidnappers shot Mr. Wale in the stomach and his wife in the leg at about 3am, West African time in Rantya Lowcost, Jos South Local Government Area.
A young girl fleeing from an earlier attacked house ran into Mr. Wale’s house for safety, attracting the shooters, eyewitnesses say.
The attackers chasing after the girl with heavy gunfire took out Mr. Wale and his wife before abducting the fleeing girl’s aunt, an eyewitness said.
The abducted lady was the third to be kidnapped in the same house within two years, it was learnt.
But despite distress calls, Police only arrived the scene of the attack several hours later.
Inquiries also sent to the Police spokesperson, Mr. Gabriel Ogaba have yet to be replied four days later.
Rantya Lowcost has witnessed a surge in violent crimes in recent years.
The developing areas of the community are the worse hit but authorities have yet to respond to the threat.
