A hotel in the Gwagwalada Area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Hilltop International Premium Hotel at Tunga-Maje was Tuesday night, September 21st, 2021 attacked by suspected gunmen.
According to the report by Punch, the gunmen were engaged in a gun duel with policemen providing security for the hotel. The battle eventually led to the death of a policeman.
Three persons who lodged in the hotel were also injured, one of them being hit by a stray bullet.
It was gathered that this was the second attack on the hotel in few months as gunmen abducted a former member of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Friday Makama, and eight others from the same hotel.
A worker in the hotel who narrated the incident said that the armed men shot at the doors of the hotel to gain access.
“They came around 11 pm. They were many. We had closed for the day and had locked everywhere. They shot at the doors. They shot the person they abducted before taking him away
“Three people were injured. One of them, a bullet hit him right in his room. Policemen have been coming to our hotel since the last attack, they met the attackers and engaged them.
“They flogged us. People that were injured were those who lodged in our hotel,” the source said.
The FCT Police Command spokesperson, DSP Josephine Adeh, confirmed the incident, adding that a policeman was killed during the attack.
“Suspected kidnappers were carrying out their operations and our Police foiled their attack and engaged them in a gun battle; unfortunately, one of our men paid the supreme price.
“One person was also injured,” Adeh added
