He recalled that: “On 24/4/2021 between the hours of 12 to 1 am the command’s operatives attached to Numan Division, while in Lafiya to effect an arrest in a case of criminal conspiracy and theft that is under investigation, were attacked by hoodlums numbering about 60 and armed with dangerous weapons.

He said Commissioner of Police, Aliyu Adamu Alhaji, commiserated with the family and friends of the deceased officer.

According to Nguroje, the police commissioner warned members of the public that consequences await any person or group of persons “who, under whatever guise, engage in an unwarranted attack on any police officer”.
