BANDITS STORM RESIDENCE OF POLICE IRT IN KADUNA, KILL ONE PERSON
Reports indicate that bandits have attacked the residence of an officer attached to the Inspector General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT), ASP Aliyu Umar, in Kofa Konar area, Zaria LGA of Kaduna, killing one person and injuring another.
Sources say the assailants invaded the community around 9pm on Monday in their large numbers and proceeded to the residence of the security operative, shooting sporadically.
The attackers shot dead one Abubakar Aliyu while another elderly person identified as Abubakar was shot and is currently receiving Medicare at an undisclosed hospital.
Eons Intelligence gathered that the bandits also rustled cattle belonging to the victim's Fulani neighbours just outside the Kodak Kona gate of Zaria city.
“My house was full of people numbering more than 20, including my friend who arrived from Egypt, my aged mother and my siblings. When I heard shootings, I opened my entrance door thinking it was police officers on patrol, but I saw three people holding guns and I quickly went back in and shut the door then locked it.”
“Thanks to Allah, none of my family members was affected. However, one Abubakar Sani was reportedly killed after he sustained a gunshot wound, while an elderly person, Abubakar, was shot in the chest and is being rushed to hospital for medical attention," Umar told newsmen.
