In an unsettling incident in Adamawa State, the local police force reported a violent attack on their headquarters, resulting in the tragic death of Inspector Jacob Daniel. The clash reportedly began at Target Junction in Yola, the state’s capital. Commissioner of Police, Afolabi Babatola, has swiftly condemned the incident, ordering an immediate investigation to ensure peace and justice.
However, the Nigerian Army’s Brigade Commander offers a different perspective, claiming that the police initiated the conflict by firing at their troops at a checkpoint. The Army asserts that their intervention was in response to the shooting, as they sought to rescue a soldier injured by the police. The conflicting narratives highlight the need for a thorough and impartial investigation to uncover the truth.
As tensions persist, both security forces are urged to cooperate with the ongoing inquiry, emphasizing the importance of transparency and accountability in resolving this challenging situation.
