The killing of at least four people during the invasion of a supermarket by gunmen in One Man Village, near Mararaba, in the Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa state has been confirmed by the Nigerian Police Force.

Some armed men reportedly attacked the supermarket and killed four customers around 8:45pm on Tuesday.

In a video obtained from the incident, a voice was heard saying that one of the deceased individuals possessed an identity card belonging to the Central Bank of Nigeria.

When contacted, the Nasarawa police spokesperson, Ramhan Nansel, also confirmed the incident, adding that four persons were killed in the incident.

He added that the state Commissioner of Police has directed the Deputy Commissioner in charge of SCID to investigate the matter.

Ramhan Nansel said, “I wish to confirm that on January 2, 2024, some hoodlums numbering four attacked the Wisdom Supermarket at Adehi, Karu local government shooting sporadically. The armed men opened fire on customers and four persons were recovered and taken to the hospital where they were confirmed dead by the doctors.

“Their corpses have been deposited at Maraba Medical Centre. The Commissioner of Police has directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigative Department in Lafia to move to the scene and carry out a comprehensive investigation into the case.

They later regained their freedom after reported payment of ransoms to the attackers.
