According to some eyewitnesses, the masquerader and his followers were gunned down by two men on a motorcycle during the Eche-Anee festival which is normally celebrated annually by the people of Kogi Central.

One of the eyewitnesses, who pleaded not to be named, said that immediately the masquerader and three of his followers were gunned down, other people at the scene took to their heels.

Commenting on the tragic incident, the state government said it had banned the festival to avoid further tragedy.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the state Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, warned that any masquerader, caught on the streets would be arrested, along with its followers and those managing the masquerader.

However, effort to confirm the attack from the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. William Aya, proved abortive.

But sources close to the Kogi State Police Command confirmed the incident, saying the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Wilson Inalegwu, was on top of the situation.
