A village in Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna state have again witnessed the killings of two policemen and an official of the National Union Road Transport Workers (NURTW).
Naija News gathered that the incident happened in Ciki Da Falo, a village in Birnin Gwari local government around 5pm on Thursday.
Details about the killers are yet unknown as 15 people, including two brides were kidnapped.
Austin Iwar, Kaduna state police commissioner, who have confirmed the incident, didn’t give details about it.
Naija News learnt that the officers were killed at a checkpoint in the community.
Birnin-Gwari has been in the news recently for armed banditry, cattle rustling and kidnapping.
Two weeks ago, emir of Birnin Gwari, Zubairu Gwari asked his subjects to defend themselves against those invading their communities.
“We can’t be fools to wait for somebody that will not come. Nobody can stop me from telling my people to protect themselves. And that is what we are doing now because the policemen that are in Birnin Gwari cannot protect. The soldiers that are being brought come and sometimes make matters worse. I am also appealing to the president to come and see things for himself, because we are also Nigerians,” he had said in an interview.
