How Badeh Was Killed - Residents Open Up, Decry Terrible Security Situation by PizzleGold(f): 12:31pm On Dec 20, 2018
Some residents of the community where Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (rtd) was killed have revealed details of how the ex chief of defense staff was shot as he made his way from his farm.

The residents said they did not know the victim was the former chief of defense staff until his death was announced by the Air Force - One resident, Idris Musa, said he had parked his vehicle and run into the bush when he saw Badeh's Tundra drive past and run into the robbers - Another resident, Abdul Gitata, said he was attacked thrice in the area and once shot at by the gunmen whom he said were usually dressed in military uniforms The late Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (rtd), former chief of defense staff, was in his Toyota Tundra truck with registration number MUB 396 AA when he was shot by some unknown gunmen at a location in Gitata community on Keffi-Bade road, Nasarawa state.

Speaking on the unfortunate development, some residents of the community said Badeh was shot as he made his way from his farm between Koso and Kugwaru communities. They said the deceased chose to go through Panda road off the Keffi-Bade highway due to the dilapidation of the Mararaba route, Daily Trust reports.

Some residents also disclosed that the layout of the crime scene was consistent with the style of operation of gunmen who regularly attack travelers in the area. Witnesses reportedly described Badeh as being seated in front beside the driver, and shot in the trunk. They said they did not know the victim was the former chief of defense staff until his death was announced by the Air Force.

One witness identified as Idris Musa, who spoke in Hausa, said the incident happened at about 6:45pm on Tuesday, December 18. He said he was informed about an ongoing robbery on the road after being stopped by some drivers at Unguwar Mangoro, as he drove to Gitata from Keffi. He said he parked his vehicle by the roadside while looking out for oncoming vehicles near the bush, when he saw a vehicle run into the robbers.

He said: “This very man was coming with his car, Tundra, when he now switched on his head light. Then they started shooting at his car.” Musa added that he counted about 10 gunshots before he fled into the bush in fear, until he was called out by his colleagues after the gunmen left. He said: “When they went there, they saw the driver injured on the arm and another man already dead in the car.


He was shot in the stomach." He said a bandage was wrapped around the injured driver’s arm by soldiers. He added: “This is the third time in this month that something like this happens. Two people have been killed and one kidnapped this month." Musa said Badeh was shot few minutes from Zango Gitata, a community located between two military checkpoints. Also on the Keffi-Bade road is the Shitu Alao Barracks. A trader in Gitata, one Joshua Ade, however, stated that gunmen could operate about three times in a day before the two checkpoints were mounted. He said: “At times they come out three times in a day. We thank God because of the soldiers at the checkpoints.

Then we do hear gunshots from here."Ade said he saw the Tundra go by on the road on Tuesday while he was at his makeshift shop where he sells car spare parts. Few minutes later, soldiers at the Gitata checkpoints were seen speeding in opposite direction. He said: “It was this morning (Wednesday) that I got to know that the man was prominent. This month it is up to two times.

Two weeks ago, they operated and kidnapped about six people. “It has been happening before; it is because of this man that died which I think is an elderly person or top government official that everyone is hearing it. “Since last night, soldiers are going up and down. They mount road blocks down there and about 10 of their vehicles have been patrolling the area."

Another resident, Abdul Gitata, said he was attacked thrice and once shot at by the gunmen whom he said were usually dressed in military uniforms. He said: “The last time that I encountered them, almost two months, they shot at my car and broke three of my tyres. They usually lie down in the bush and just start shooting at the car. When you stop, they will kidnap people and go.

“That place is a bush, no houses there and there is a bending corner. Normally if you hear any armed robbery incident, it is that place. When you are coming from Keffi, your mind won’t rest until you cross the place. They operate even in the day.

“They (gunmen) used to have information. When security are patrolling, you won’t see them; but when soldiers are gone, they now operate." Meanwhile, We previously reported that President Muhammadu Buhari described the killing of Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (rtd) as “very sad and unfortunate.”

The president, in a statement by his special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Wednesday, December 19, commiserated with the family of the late four-star general, his friends and professional colleagues in the military.

President Buhari also condoled with the people and government of Adamawa over the demise of the former chief of defence staff.

So it is possible that this was NOT an assassination but a random act of crime? Talk about karma. Ordinary people can not suffer alone. Let these big fish feel it too.

Cooked up story to cover up an obvious case of assassination as a mere arm robbery case.

I guess the only story intelligent people like you would believe is that Buhari killed him, right? So much for intelligence in this country.

From what these people said, it's possible even they (the robbers) didn't know it was Badeh. Am sure they'd prefer having him alive so dem go fit collect ransom.

If an immediate former chief of defence staff can be snuffed off like that, what is the fate of an average individual.

Lets take a close look from the OP:

the incident happened at about 6:45pm
Quiet a bright time at least to see the target
When they went there, they saw the driver injured on the arm
Whom we later learnt died, when and who pronounced him dead? He was injured on the arm Was there any assignment not yet completed?
a bandage was wrapped around the injured driver’s arm by soldiers
Again we later learnt he died. When and who pronounced him dead?
Musa said Badeh was shot few minutes from Zango Gitata, a community located between two military checkpoints
Also on the Keffi-Bade road is the Shitu Alao Barracks
The perimeter is "soldierful" check points and a barrack
Abdul Gitata, said he was attacked thrice and once shot at by the gunmen whom he said were usually dressed in military uniforms
Did he say usually dressed in military uniform?
Normally if you hear any armed robbery incident, it is that place. When you are coming from Keffi, your mind won’t rest until you cross the place. They operate even in the day
Why hasnt the check point shift to that spot as it is venue for recurring armed robbery incident

“They (gunmen) used to have information. When security are patrolling, you won’t see them; but when soldiers are gone, they now operate."


Who gives them the information? You dont give what you dont have

The robbers most likely didn't know who he was..
Well, he contributed to the insecurity in the country...

May his soul and that of the earlier victims of Nigeria's insecurity rest in peace.

He was the defence minister and he was just killed like chicken. His performance was not good enough when he was there.

An Ex chief of Defense staff is who people are talking trash About!

3 People who know who killed Badeh

1. GOD ALMIGHTY

2. BAdeh Himself, wherever He is knows who killed him

3. The Assasinators and their Sponsors


Everyone will get his Reward in due Time...

I Rest My Case!

Now now now they've formed a story. Dis people sef. How cum his car was d only car attacked, how cum pix that were taken did not show other people, houses or areas outside that were affected, must we cover everything up? If it were true, i guess d headline of d day of his death would hav been "FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF ATTACKED BY ROBBERS". anybody dat posted this story to convince us that he was not assassinated is mad to think he/she can fool us. Rubbish

With the state of Nigeria, it's not far-fetched for anyone to catch a stray bullet, or stray knife or stray accident, or anything. It's sad.
