Two brothers have been killed by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in the early hours of Wednesday in Ajowa Akoko community in the Akoko North West Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The gunmen were said to have also kidnapped two other persons in the community at that same early hours.
According to reports the gunmen invaded the community around 1 a.m. on Wednesday.
A source disclosed to SECURITY REPORTERS.com that the armed men arrived the community and began to shoot sporadically into the air for several minutes as they tried to gain entrance into the building where their victims were staying.
The sources added that no one could ascertain the mission of the gunmen, whether they just wanted to abduct Yekini, who is a popular cattle seller, or to assassinate him.
He disclosed that the sustained shooting of the hoodlums attracted some security operatives in the area who swiftly mobilised themselves and dislodged the gunmen who took to their heels.
It was, however, learnt that the hoodlums invaded another area, killing two sons of a man simply identified as Dele, abducting two other children from the house.
He said the security agents which included soldiers, police and Amotekun corps from the area have swung into action, combing the forest to fish out the enemies of the Community.
