Boko Haram targets IG’s home, kills officers, others

24 February 2012

STILL on the prowl despite the Federal Government’s efforts to rein it in, the Boko Haram has left four policemen and two persons dead in the wake of fresh attacks in Kano, Yobe and Niger States.

But an agency report indicated yesterday that the figure of the policemen that were killed was up to six.

The suspected Boko Haram gunmen struck a few metres away from the residence of the Acting Inspector-General of Police (IG), Mohammed Dahiru Dikko Abubakar, in the Kano metropolis.

The renewed attacks came barely 24 hours after men of the Joint Task Force (JTF) engaged the group in a shoot-out in the Tishama area of the metropolis.

Investigations revealed that the policemen who were attached to the IG’s Kano residence were taking breakfast at a nearby eatery when the gunmen who came on four motorbikes struck.
