The security breach in Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi State has continued to rise as gunmen have killed four people believed to be staff of the West African Ceramic Company.
The victims included an Indian, a policeman, Naval Officer and the driver of the coaster bus which conveyed them.
A resident of the town, Sani Ejiga who shared the story on Facebook, said the incident happened at the Niger Bridge before the Ceramics company.
This is coming after the Wednesday abduction of three children in Kaduna Estate Ajaokuta Steel Township Complex.
The insecurity in that part of Kogi State also attracted attention recently after gunmen killed three policemen and five vigilantes in Jida Bassa under Ajaokuta.
