The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has sent out a team to investigate the murder of former defence staff, Air Chief Marshal, Alex Badeh.
This was revealed in a statement by the spokesman for Nasarawa state police command, Kennedy Idirisu, on Wednesday, December 19 in Lafia.
The Police Intelligence Response Team and the Special Tactical Squad were sent to Nasarawa state alongside senior military personnel to find the killers.
The team was led to the scene of the incident by the commissioner of police, Yahaya Bello, under the IGP’s directive.
According to Idirisu, the 15th defence staff was shot dead at about 6:30 p.m on Tuesday, December 18, by gunmen at Tudu-Uku village along Gitata-Keffi road in Karu local government area of the state.
He explained that Badeh was returning from his farm with his friend and driver when unknown gunmen ambushed and opened fire on their moving vehicle.
He added that Badeh’s friend was also abducted and the driver injured, adding that any information from the public that would aid the investigation would be treated as confidential.
“The former Chief of Defense Staff suffered gunshot injury, which resulted in his death, with the driver sustaining injuries while the friend was abducted.
“The Nasarawa State Commissioner of Police is therefore calling on the public with useful information to avail the police with the view to rescuing the abducted person and arresting the perpetrators of the dastardly act,” Idirisu said.
