Unknown gunmen have killed two persons, including a policeman in two separate attacks in Yola and Mubi in Adamawa.
Confirming the incidents to newsmen on Friday in Yola, the Public Relations Officer of the Adamawa State Police Command, ASP. Nemuel Yoila, said the two incidents occurred on Thursday night.
“A routine patrol team was attacked in Yola and we lost a policeman while another policeman sustained injuries during the shoot out,” he said.
Yoila also confirmed an attack on the residence of a chieftain of the PDP, Alhaji Abdurrahman Kwacham, in Mubi in which his private security guard was killed and two other residents got injured.
Kwacham who is the assistant financial secretary of the PDP in Adamawa, was not at home during the midnight attack in which the suspects fired several shots at the house and left.
Yoila urged the public to offer useful information to the police to tackle security challenges in the state.
Meanwhile, Kwacham has expressed surprised over the attack on his resident in Mubi town.
The PDP chieftain who was heading to Mubi from Yola to assess the situation said he had no problem with anyone and wondered why his residence attacked.
He urged perpetrators of the violence to embrace dialogue in resolving their grievances.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that no fewer that 30 people had been killed by gunmen within the past six months in Mubi and Yola.
