Policeman killed, another injured in ex-IGP Coomasie’s residence


Unknown gunmen on Saturday attacked the residence of former Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Coomasie, killing a mobile policeman and injuring another.
Two attackers on a motorcycle opened fire on the two policemen stationed at the gate of the residence about 8p.m., but did not gain entrance into the house.
The attackers were, however, said to have escaped with the rifle of one of the policemen.
A neighbour said that the former IGP and his family members were safe.
The corpse of the deceased policeman has been deposited at the mortuary of Katsina General Hospital, where the other injured mobile policeman was receiving treatment.
State Police Commissioner, Besen Dabiya-Gwana, did not respond to several telephone calls, but the Command’s spokesman, DSP Isa Gambo, said the police were conducting investigations into the matter.
