So sad. Gunmen on Monday ambushed and killed four workers of a mining company, including a Chinese at Alongani village in Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Kennedy Idirisu, confirmed the killing to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Lafia on Tuesday.
Idirisu said the victims were returning from their mining site in a company truck at about 4p.m. when the assailants shot them.
Idirisu said a Chinese, a police escort and two others were killed during the ambush while another Chinese survived with bullet wound and is being treated in a hospital.
