Two persons suspected to be among the killers of the chairman of Ardo-Kola local government area in Taraba state, Salihu Dovo, were brutally killed by Nahuta and Ardo-Kola communities on Sunday.

An eyewitness told The Nation the two persons were trying to escape from Ardo-Kola village with two AK.47 rifles few hours after the council boss was killed by gunmen.

It was further gathered some youths of the village quickly raise alarm to prevent the two persons from escaping.

It was learnt residents of the communities trooped out armed with assorted weapons and hacked the two fleeing suspects to death.

Spokesman of Taraba Command DSP David Misal, who confirmed the incident, said the police retrieved the two corpses and deposited them in the Federal Medical Centre mortuary Jalingo.

He said the police have so far arrested three suspects in connection with the killing of the council chairman.

Dovo was kidnapped from his residence in Jalingo in the early hours of Sunday.

He was later killed alongside his nephew, Timothy Aminu. (The Nation)
