The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) on Wednesday confirmed the killing of two officers of the commission by gunmen in Koton Karfe community in Kogi.
The Sector Commander of the FRSC in Kogi, Mr Godwin Omiko, confirmed the killing while speaking with newsmen in Lokoja.
He said that the officers, Olaoluwa Adebayo and Adesina Iyanda were shot by the same armed bandits, who attacked Koton Karfe Prison and set 144 inmates free on Nov. 2.
Omiko said that the slain marshals were among six officers on night duty at the FRSC office on the fateful day.
He said that the officers on hearing sporadic gunshots from the bandits ran in different directions for safety.
He said that Adebayo and Iyanda were hiding in a nearby bush when they were sighted by the escaping gunmen, who later took them away.
