Gunmen shoot AIG of police in Kaduna

Audu Madaki, an assistant inspector-general of police (AIG) in charge of zone 12 has reportedly been attacked by gunmen in Kaduna.

He was said to have been attacked by the assailants on Tuesday at Barde Zangidi along Kaduna-Abuja road.

Although details of the attack are still hazy, he was said to have been shot in the leg while his orderly was killed.

When TheCable contacted Thomas Goni, zone 12 police spokesperson, to comment on the incident, he said he is yet to receive details of the attack.

“We are still waiting for the details of the incident,” he said.

“You know it did not happen within our jurisdiction here; it happened in Kaduna command so I have been on the line with Kaduna to get the details from them.

While confirming that the AIG is alive, Goni said information about the incident will be made available when details are received from the Kaduna command.

Mohammed Jalige, Kaduna police spokesperson, did not respond to calls and text messages to comment on the attack.

In recent years, Kaduna-Abuja highway has become a hotbed for gunmen who raid vehicles, abduct and kill travellers.

The development comes on the heels of spiralling insecurity in the country.
