Nigeria Police Force, Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi has called on general public and medical practitioners to draw attention of police to anyone with gunshot wounds for further investigation. This is coming as operatives of DFI-IRT neutralized one kidnapper Isa Dei Dei after operation at Kidnappers Hideout while others allegedly flew with gunshot.
ACP Adejobi disclosed this in a statement signed this morning in Abuja. He said “at about 1015HRS on the 5th of February 2024, operatives of the DFI-IRT, acting on intelligence, got information on the hideout of a notorious bandit group in the suburb of the FCT, led by one Isa Dei-Dei and immediately proceeded to the location for possible arrest”.
“Upon closing in on them, they sighted the police and fled. The operatives immediately went after them, which led to a fierce gun duel. In the process, the notorious Isa Dei-Dei was neutralized while other members of the syndicate managed to escape with gunshot injuries”.
Adejobi said “we therefore urge members of the public, most especially medical practitioners, to call our attention to anyone or patients seen with gunshot wounds for further investigation.”
