He said that the attackers later fled the scene.
The statement, however, did not disclose whether the armed men robbed their victims, but stated that the Divisional Police Officer in Dekina mobilized operatives to the scene immediately after learning about the incident.
“He met one yet to be identified body lying in pool of his blood and moved him to a nearby hospital where he was confirmed dead.
“The body was deposited at the hospital for autopsy,” the statement said.
According to the statement, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ayuba Ekpeji has deployed a team of operatives to hunt for the hoodlums.
