Egele, popularly known as Baba petrol, and said to be factional chairman of IPMAN, was reportedly abducted at about 7pm, on Monday, in Jattu, Etsako West Local Government Area of the state while returning from work.

“The gunmen ambushed the IPMAN chairman with two vehicles without plate number and fired at his vehicle, killing his driver.

“The IPMAN chairman was later taken away after the security operatives attached to him were overpowered and injured by the gunmen,” an eyewitness said.
