The Commissioner of Police in Sokoto State, Mohammed Abdulkadir, has confirmed the killing of two mobile police officers by suspected armed robbers in the early hours of Monday.

Mr. Abdulkadir, who addressed journalists in Sokoto on the incident, said the police officers were attacked and killed while on duty at the NNPC Mega station, Gusua road, Sokoto.

“The suspected armed robbers came in a vehicle, overpowered the policemen, shot and killed them.

“They made a futile attempt to open the safe of the filling station,” he said.

Mr. Abdulkadir said he believed that the armed hoodlums had targeted the filling station’s sales of Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“We will disclose the identities of the policemen killed after duly informing their various families.

“Their remains had been deposited at the Usman Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto,” he added.

The police commissioner also confirmed the discovery of a headless body also on Monday morning in the city.

He said the headless body of the deceased was found packaged in a sack and dumped at a refuse site on Maituta road, Sokoto.

He said that the headless body was also deposited the morgue.

“No arrest was made as at now in the two cases, but we have swung into action to apprehend the fleeing hoodlums and bring them to book.”

    Buhari, Buhari, Buhari

    Buhari, Buhari, Buhari.
    Nigeria is dying. Nigeria’s People are suffering. The whole economy
    of Nigeria has shrunk under your incompetent government – for the first time
    in 25 years. The national currency is tumbling to the floor. Factories are
    closing. There’s no electricity supply nationwide. Violent crimes are overwhelming
    Nigeria’s communities with robberies, rape and murder. Living has become
    impossible without crimes and thefts. What do you need Ambassadors for in this
    dismal situation, when your country has no productive capacity under your
    ignorant mismanagement of the national economy. Forget your list of Ambassadors.
    Throw it away and start thinking.

    Every government in the world comes up with an anti-recession plan,
    except your shambolic government. You have made Nigeria worse than you met it
    and corruptly appointed ignoramuses into public office on nepotic or tribal
    basis – including those who can’t think properly but whose sponsors were also
    the financiers of your election campaign. You got it all wrong from day one
    when you took a presidential office as if it is the stool of an Emir to be seen
    in flowing gown even if with an empty head. The result of your vacuous mind-set
    is three [3] consecutive quarters of economic recession in Nigeria and still
    counting.
