A source told the Naijacrawl that the bandits came to the community around 10pm on motorcycles, shooting sporadically to scare the residents before abducting their victims.
According to the source, the late JTF commander opened fire on sighting the bandits, not knowing that the bandits had closed in on his team.
He added, “The bandits opened fire and hit the commander in his legs, and he fell." They then shot him in the head, shattering his skull. A resident who was hit by bullets died on his way to a hospital. "
The source explained that the remains of the commander were later buried in accordance with Islamic rites.
According to the source, the situation would have been worse but for the quick intervention of neighbouring communities, who mobilised and chased away the bandits.
The Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mohammed Jalige, the State Police Public Relations Officer could not respond to a call put on his phone to confirm the incident.
