President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered an immediate investigation into the incident which led to the death of three police officers and a civilian.

The President gave the orders to the Defence Headquarters on Thursday, following an incident involving the troops of 93 Battalion, Takum, Taraba that resulted in the deaths.

This was made known by the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, while speaking with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting of the National Security Council, presided over by President Buhari at the State House, Abuja.

The Army and Police authorities had, on Wednesday, constituted a Joint Investigation Panel to investigate the incident.

He added that “We are making substantial progress in all the areas of conflicts,’’ he said.

On the issue of using technology and drones to fight crimes in the south-west as promised by the President to leaders of the region, he said:

“All the services are using one technology or the other in order to ensure that our country is secured.

“So, security will continue to play a role and we are also looking at other areas of technology that are not currently in use to ensure that we put together all that is required to ensure the security of Nigeria and Nigerians,’’ he added.
