Policeman Killed At Daughters’ Wedding In Adamawa


Unknown gunmen on Friday killed a policeman at the wedding of his two daughters in Damboa town in Damboa local government area of Borno State, local sources said yesterday.

The policeman who ran from the town for months following death threat sent to him by unknown persons and who just returned to the town last week in order to marry out his daughters was shot dead in front of his house while conducting the wedding Fatiha of his daughters shortly after the Friday Muslim congregation prayer.

“He came back last week to marry out his two daughters but was shot dead on Friday after Jumat while the wedding was going on,” a resident who craved anonymity said.

The deceased officer hailed from Michika local government area of Adamawa State but resident in Damboa.

Police are yet to comment on the murder.
