Four National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, officers in Ondo State have been shot dead by gunmen suspected to be drug dealers.
The incident reportedly occurred over the weekend while the deceased were on duty at a checkpoint in the state, Daily Post reports.
The deceased officials have been identified as, Abduljalad Mohammed; Wellinton Emmanuel; Magaji Aliu and Mohammed lliyasu.
According to a source, the gunmen armed with AK 47 rifles came on motorcycles and shot four NDLEA officers and as well set ablaze the agency’s Toyota Hilux.
“The NDLEA officers were five in number at the check point but one of them escaped and their rifles were taken away,” the source said.
The source further confirmed that the bodies of the NDLEA officials were found by some farmers in the early hours of the day.
“When their bodies were discovered, their guns were not found with them.
“Our society is no more safe, if armed men are being gunned down like that,” the source lamented.
The NDLEA Commander in the state, Mr Haruna Dagara, who confirmed the incident said efforts were ongoing to nab the culprits.
“Our men have gone to evacuate the corpses from the scene and other paramilitary agencies are on ground,” he said.
