Bandits Kill JTF commander, Abduct Medical Doctor,16 Others In Kaduna

A joint task force commander and a resident of Sabon Gero community, New Millennium City Settlement, in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State were killed when bandits stormed the area on Tuesday.

The invasion of the bandits in the community also led to the abduction of a medical doctor and 16 others.

Report says that bandits came to the community around 10pm on motorcycles, shooting sporadically, scaring the residents before abducting their victims.

On sighting the bandits, the late JTF commander opened fire not knowing that the bandits had closed in on his team.

The bandits hit 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 incident is yet to be confirmed by the police as the Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mohammed Jalige, the State Police Public Relations Officer could not respond to a call.
