Gunmen have abducted a businessman, Mr. Yaro Talle, and killed his driver in Keffi Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
It was learnt that the gunmen, who stormed Talle’s filling station on Wednesday night in Keffi, shot sporadically into the air as they arrived the scene.
Many people who fled the scene during the attack sustained various degrees of injuries in the process.
An eyewitness, Mr. Rabo Mohammed, told Saturday PUNCH that the gunmen shot the head driver of the station, Mr. Saidu Abdullahi, before whisking Talle away.

According to Idirisu, investigation into the incident has since commenced to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested and face the full wrath of the law.
