A police escort has been shot dead while four Chinese expatriates working on the Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge railway have been abducted.

Our correspondent gathered that the gunmen laid ambush for the victims at Adeaga/Alaagba village a border community between Oyo and Ogun, on Wednesday.

 The gunmen clad in black caftan, reportedly stormed the site of the rail project at Adeaga/Alaagba village in Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun.
