Two persons have been killed by a vigilance group in Ogaminana community, in the Adavi Local Government Area of Kogi State.


PUNCH Metro gathered that the incident occurred on Friday when the vigilantes raided a popular hotel where the nightclub was holding contrary to an order of the local government authorities banning such a gathering.


Two of the clubbers reportedly died on the spot.


The Chairman of Adavi LGA, Joseph Salami, in a statement, confirmed the incident.


He said, “The vigilance group was on their usual night patrol and working according to laid down rules of the local government on the ban of nightclub activities within its domain.


“A clash led to the loss of two lives; an officer of the vigilance group sustained an injury, and their vehicle was destroyed.”


He urged the youth in the community not to take the law into their hands over the incident.

“First, we placed a ban on nightclub activities, but as it is expected of us, we will take a critical look at the issue, investigate the genesis of it, and make sure whoever was involved is brought to book.


“As we all know, nobody is above the law, therefore, no stone will be left unturned in the course of our investigation. There’s no cause for alarm,” he added.


The state Commissioner of Police, Ayuba Ede, while also confirming the incident, said normalcy had been restored.


“At the moment, discreet investigation is ongoing,” he added.
