“The police operatives at Bosso Division visited the scene and recovered some exhibits as preliminary investigation has commenced into the unfortunate incident,” Abiodun said.

“The killers trailed Salawadeen to his house, forced their way in and stabbed him severally as three of his children watched the gory sight”, he said.

The killers then left with Salawadeen’s laptop and camera.
