Unknown assailants gun down 2 policemen, driver, injure others in Kaduna attack

The Divisional police officer (DPO) in charge of Mubi North Local Government Area of Adamawa state, Ahijo Mujeli has been kidnapped.

The DPO was reportedly kidnapped late Tuesday at Mararraban Mubi on his way from Yola, the state capital.

“The DPO was coming back from Yola and all of a sudden some yet to be identified gunmen wielding sophisticated rifles attacked him at Mararraba at about 8 p.m. and whisked him away to an unknown destination” a local resident who asked not to be named said.

Adamawa police spokesperson, Suleiman Nguroje, narrated that he was driving in his personal car around 6.30 p.m., along Mubi-Maraba road near the toll-gate when he was abducted.

“There were gunshots around the area. When our men arrived, they met an empty car identified as his,” he said.

Nguroje stated that the anti-kidnapping unit and Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the Inspector-General of Police swung into action, trailing the suspected kidnappers.
