Gunmen Attack Kogi REC’s Residence

Unidentified gunmen have reportedly attacked the residence of the Kogi State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof. Hale Gabriel Longpet at GRA, Lokoja.

It was learnt that the REC was not at home as of the time of the attack Thursday night.

A car was said to have been set ablaze and burnt to ashes by the invading gunmen during the attack. But soldiers and members of the community’s vigilante eventually repelled the attack at about 3pm.

“For over 30 minutes, we kept hearing the sound of gunshots from the flank of GRA. We learnt this morning that some miscreants attacked the house of the state REC,” Daily Trust quotes a resident as saying.

However, the whereabouts of the REC is still unknown, as some of his aides said his lines were switched off.

Meanwhile, there is tension in the area as security operatives have condoned off the vicinity from members of the public.
