Three unidentified people have been killed by gunmen in despite the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state by the government.
It was learned that the three people were reportedly killed in Narayi area of the state.
Concise News recalls that over forty people were in the state after violence broke out in some parts of the state’s metropolis on Sunday. Cars and buildings were also burnt.
A youth leader, Emmanuel Godwin, who spoke with journalists on Monday, said the gunmen pretended to be members of a vigilante group.
His words: “They came at about 2:00 am in a Hilux van and the claimed they were vigilante members from Barnawa,” Godwin said.
“We told them that Narayi is not their jurisdiction and they have no business coming to our community since we have our own vigilante group.
“As they were driving away, they picked three of boys as if they were arresting them. Shortly after they left with the boys, they shot them and dumped the corpses by the roadside.”
The youth have taken it upon themselves to protect their various communities.
“We cannot surrender the security of our area to security agents because of our experience where fake security personnel go about killing people or some of the security personnel become partisan,” one of the youth told journalists.
“What we are doing is complimenting the security agencies.”
