“Those men in military uniform normally station their vans along Ageva. From what one of the soldier men told me, he said they wanted to arrest the driver because the driver and some of his colleagues misbehaved to some of their officers in Okene. He mentioned that the men in army uniform, following a tip-off ambushed the said driver who was coming from Ibilo in Edo State.” said Mr Pelemo.

When Nigerian Tribune called on the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Nigerian Army in Kogi State, Major Jafaru Muhammed, he said “the Army was not involved in any operations please.”
