Gunmen numbering about twenty yesterday attacked the state chairman of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, Engr. Baba Agan and his tenants at his No. 44 Ankpa road residence in Makurdi, the state capital, carting away valuable items including N250,000 and a blue Jingcheng motorcycle.

 The gunmen who were led by their leader simply identified as Uma, stormed Engr. Agan’s residence on Friday night and asked him and his tenants to surrender ten per cent of the annual house rent to them otherwise they will be killed.

 They were said to have gained entrance to state CNPP’s residence by forcing themselves through the back of his fence where they started shooting sporadically to scare other residents in the area.

 According to a source who spoke to our reporter on condition of anonymity, luck ran out of the boys when Engr. Agan raised an alarm which attracted other neighbours who came out and over powered them by shouting “thief, thief, thief”.

 Narrating his ordeal, Engr Agan said the attackers left with a notice to visit the area again, threatening that when return,  they  will not hesitate to shoot at sight as their mission was yet to be accomplished.

 He said this was not the first time he has been attacked, explaining that other time the boys came, they claimed they were members of the vigilante group, adding that at each attack he had informed the police who seemed to be helpless.

 A victim of the attack, Mallam Mustapha Adamu wo deals in recycleable metal parts popularly known as ‘iron condemn’, who also spoke to our reporter revealed that the ‘boys’ have been terrorizing the area for a long time now and appealed to the police and other law enforcement agencies to embark on intensive surveillance in the area in order to fish out the culprits.

 When contacted, the police spokesman in the state, DSP Daniel Ezeala said he was yet to be briefed on the matter.
