Oyeyemi said the command had deployed tactical teams and was on the trail of the kidnappers.
He said, however, that police could not determine whether the gunmen were shepherds.
“It’s true, the incident happened on Wednesday. The victims are Chinese expatriates working on the construction site at the terminus of the railway around the Alaagba area, not far from Kila.
“The armed men ambushed the victims on their way and they were attacked. A policeman who escorted them was killed.
“We started the investigation since yesterday, we are on the trail of these people and I hope we will have them.
“All of our tactical teams have been deployed in this direction and we are trying to locate them.
“We believe that by the grace of God, we will get them.
“We cannot say at this time whether the kidnappers are Fulani shepherds until we can get them,” PPRO said.
