GUNMEN STORM HOTEL IN ABUJA, KILL POLICE OFFICER AND INJURE OTHERS
Eons Intelligence have gathered that gunmen on Tuesday attacked the Hilltop International Premium Hotel at Tunga-Maje in the Gwagwalada Area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, killing a security personnel and inflicting injuries on several others.
Sources say the assailants engaged the policemen in a gun battle that led to the death of a police officer.
Eons Intelligence also gathered that three persons who lodged in the hotel were injured while another was hit by a stray bullet.
Confirming the incident, the FCT Police Command spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, said an officer was killed during the attack.
“Suspected kidnappers were carrying out their operations and our operatives foiled their attack and engaged them in a gun battle; unfortunately, one of our men paid the supreme price.
“One person was also injured,” she said.
Recall, in June, Eons Intelligence reported that gunmen invaded this same hotel, abducted a former member of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Friday Makama, and eight others.
