From Onuminya Innocent, Sokoto
Kidnappers have killed three policemen and abducted a Syrian expatriate along Sokoto-Jega Road.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Cordelia Nwawe, told The AUTHORITY that the policemen were attached to a construction company’s expatriates.
She said that the officers were receiving treatment after they were shot by the kidnappers in an undisclosed hospital, where they later died.
She said that efforts were on to track the assailants and free the abducted expatriate.
Nwawe said that the police in Sokoto under CP Usman Murtala Mani were not deterred by the incident, but were resolute in making the state criminal-free.
She appealed to anybody with useful information in tracking the assailants to avail the police of such, adding that the identity of the informant would be kept secret.
