Abba said the incident occurred on Tuesday at about 11:20pm, when the bandits attacked one of its patrol bases on Birniwa-Galadi axis.

“The bandits arrived at the base on two motorcycles, one is carrying three persons and the other one is carrying two persons.

“Immediately on arrival, they opened fire on the Immigration staff on patrol, which resulted in the death of one of the staff named Abdullahi Mohammed (CIA) and another two of the team members sustained serious bullet wounds; they are Abba Musa Kiyawa (DSI) and Zubairu Garba (AII).

“As a result of heavy exchange of fire, the bandits fled into the bush and abandoned their motorcycles and handset (Techno T5 mobile phone).

“The 2 motorcycles are Bajaj with chasis no: MD2A18AXS7MWK81092 and Royal with chasis no: RY157FMINILI2607, all now in our custody,” Abba said.

The comptroller added that the injured staff were taken to the hospital for medication and observation, while the deceased officer had been buried.

According to him, the abandoned motorcycles and mobile phones would be handed over to the police for further investigation and action.

“I must commend the officers for their gallantry in repelling the attackers that made them take to their heels and abandon their motorcycles and phone.

“This shows that the NIS is willing and ever ready to defend the nation and will not relent in the fight against crimes in the state,” Abba said.
