BREAKING: Soldiers Kill 2 Policemen, Injure 3 at INEC Collation Centre In Jalingo

At least two officers have been confirmed dead after soldiers opened fire on police officers at the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) collation centre in Jailingo, Taraba State.


The State Police Command Spokesperson, Abdullahi Usman, confirmed the incident via a phone conversation with THE WHISTLER on Monday.

The incident, according to reports, started after a disagreement between personnel of both security agencies.

The soldiers had reportedly sent the officers at the collation centre away while invading the state’s police headquarters where vehicles were vandalized.

Speaking to THE WHISTLER, Usman said, “I can confirm that two officers were killed and three were injured by soldiers”.

He said the police commissioner in the state, Sulieman Amodu, has set up a committee to investigate the cause of the incident.
