Gunmen kill policeman, cart away rifle in Kaduna
« on: October 07, 2013, 01:52:14 PM »
The Kaduna State Police Command on Monday confirmed the death of a policeman shot by gunmen on Sunday in Ungwan Muazu area of Kaduna.

The  attack came a week after a team of the state security outfit, Operation Yaki, came under attack from gunmen in Tudun Wada area of the city.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Olufemi Adenaike, who confirmed the two incidents said Sunday’s attack was carried out by gunmen on a motorcycle, who killed the police officer and took away his gun.

He said that the command would investigate the incident as the policeman was supposed to be on duty elsewhere as at the time of the shooting.

On the attack of Operation Yaki personnel in Tudun Wada, Adenaike said they were also shot at by gunmen on motorbikes while on patrol.

The police commissioner said no life was lost in the incident but that some of the officers were injured.

Adenaike said no arrest had been made but assured that the perpetrators would be brought to book.

He urged the public to continue to assist security agents with useful information that would sustain existing peace in the state.(NAN)
