Three mobile police officers on patrol were shot dead in the early hours of Monday on a road between Plateau and Kaduna states, PREMIUM TIMES learnt.

The incident occurred at Hawan Kibo, the boundary between Plateau and Kaduna states.

Although the police spokesperson, Terna Tyopev, could not be reached at press time, a police source who confirmed the attack said the officers’ rifles were also taken away.

The source said the incident occurred at the same spot where two police officers attached to the special task force on Jos crisis were shot and killed earlier in the year.

Monday’s killing occurred about 24 hours after gunmen raided Godogodo community, a settlement in Jama’ar Local Government Area of Kaduna State. Several residents have since abandoned the community while travellers on the Jos-Kafanchan-Abuja road have also deserted the route.
