The police in Kwara State have confirmed the killing of a police inspector, Adebayo Adeforiti, and the abduction of a Chinese national by some gunmen at CGC construction company along Shao/Oloru Expressway. The kidnap occurred on July 2 at about 16:15hrs.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Kwara police spokesman, Okasanmi Ajayi, on Tuesday in Ilorin.

“Some armed men suspected to be kidnappers invaded the premises of CGC construction company along Shao/Oloru Expressway, shot and killed Inspector Adebayo Adeforiti attached to PMF 15, Ilorin, who was on guard duty at the company, and abducted a Chinese national working in the site and escaped into the bushes.
