Gunmen Kill Two Riot Policemen At Taraba Checkpoint by iwaeda: 4:25pm On Apr 07
Gunmen, on Monday, killed two riot policemen at a checkpoint in Dogon-Gawa, Takum Local Government Area of Taraba State.

The Executive Chairman, Takum Local Government Council, Mr Shiban Tikari, who confirmed the incident, told journalists that gunmen suspected to be bandits took away the slain cops’ rifles.

According to him, the incident happened when the two policemen were left behind to provide security at the checkpoint, while their colleagues went into town to get food.

Tikari stated, “The gunmen came on motorcycles and opened fire on the two policemen, killing them in the process. The attackers also took away their rifles.

“There have been reoccurring incidents of attacks of this kind in the last few months by bandits, who used to disguise in military Special Joint Task Force uniforms.

“These attacks, especially the one of today, have heightened tension in the area.”

This was even as he condemned attacks on security personnel in the area in the last few months.

Efforts to get the reaction of the state police command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP David Misal, failed as he did not take his calls.

Is this UGM too? The same ones in the East and South that without investigation, stupid IGP and the dirty press have labelled IPOB/ESN? When did they reach Taraba or our omniscient police/insecurity agents can differentiate gunmen from gunmen?

Any nigerian especially rich ones ,who still think nigeria is going to get better ,is one of the most deluded mumu species in world . Both animal and human world.

I would not have made the statement ,till i read the topic, nigeria is better than america. about 6 hours back. Where, so called rich nigerians started making insulting claims,that people who made comments against nigeria are all low class nigerians ,like agbero or yahoo boys or low class people who have never left nigeria for outside world etc .
Some idiots made comments like america is awash with guns and you can be killed ,as simple as going to mall.
At least they make a serious effort to catch a culprit and sentence him to him to jail .While in the zoo ,our fulani friends keep on massacring people but nobody is sentenced to jail or if god forbid ,they will be released as repentant person.
In nigeria you are a silly 3 grade citizen , how rich you are.
The first class citizen is the cow
second class citizen is Fulani
third class is your stinking ass .
