The spokesman of the state police command, Mohammed Jalige, who disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Kaduna, said the incident happened along the Jada Road in Tudun Wada area of Kaduna South Local Government Area of the state.

He said: “On June 13, 2021 at about 0500 hours, the command received a distress call through the Divisional Police Officer in Tudun Wada that some armed men had invaded Jada Road in a bid to commit a heinous crime in the area.

“In view of the report, some police patrol teams were immediately dispatched to the area.

“The officers involved were very tactical in their responses and their operational sagacity succeeded in repelling the attack.”
