President Buhari orders a thorough probe into the killing of policemen in Taraba State by soldiers

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered a thorough probe into the killing of three policemen and a civilian in Ibi, Taraba State by soldiers who had reportedly mistaken them for kidnappers.

The Police said that the soldiers’ action was despite sufficient proof that the police personnel were on legitimate duty transporting an arrested kidnap kingpin suspect, Alhaji Hamisu to the command headquarters in the state capital, Jalingo.

Buhari, who convened a Security Council meeting at the Presidential Villa Abuja, ordered the Defence Headquarters to constitute a committee to investigate the matter.

Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar said that the council decided that “for the unfortunate incidents in Taraba State in Ibi, a committee will be set up by Defence Headquarters to critically look into the circumstances that led to the unfortunate incident”.
