Gunmen kill policeman in Kaduna

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 News Agency of Nigeria reports that the attack came a week after members 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 the command would investigate the incident as the policeman was supposed to be on duty elsewhere at the time of the shooting.

Adenaike added that the “Operation Yaki” personnel were also shot by gunmen on motorbikes.
