Some of them told their wives and children they would soon be back. Will they ever return? That is the question that their loved ones have been seeking answers to since last Thursday.

Their vehicle was ambushed by a cult group known as Ombatse at Nasarawa Eggon, Nasarawa State. The bodies of no fewer than 40 policemen have been found, burnt beyond recognition.

Some of those whose bodies have not been found are: Sergeants Elisha Nugu, Gideon Fadah and Obadiah Yakubu – all of the 38 Squadron Police Mobile Police in Akwanga.

Sergeant Nugu’s son, Gideon, 21, a final year student of Government Secondary School, Ubbe, Akwanga, said his hope of becoming a Customs officer has faded following the sudden disappearance of his father.

Mr. Samuel Yakubu, the elder bother to Sergeant Obadiah Yakubu, who is reportedly missing, said: “We have not seen our brother’s body up till now.”
