Akahi News found out that the attackers had earlier stormed the communities and taken at least 18 people hostage.According to reports, the terrorists stormed the communities at midnight on motorcycles and began sporadic shooting.
According to Isah, the command was made aware of the situation and sent its personnel to the scene right away to confront the terrorists.
But he said that the two people were killed before the police arrived, and he said that another resident was hurt.
Isah continued, “On October 12, 2022 at approximately 1 a.m., a distress call was received that terrorists in numbers, on motorcycles, were attacking BAUSHE, GATAKAWA village, Kankara Local Government Area, shooting sporadically with AK 47 rifles.”The Divisional Police Officer of the Kankara Division responded to the report by leading tactical units to the area and engaging the criminals in a fierce gun battle.All of the victims who had been kidnapped were rescued by the team after the terrorists were successfully stopped in their tracks.
Five motorcycles and two cows were found during the scene investigation.Sadly, the terrorists injured one villager and killed two others.It is feared that many terrorists were stopped or escaped with gunshot wounds from the scene.
The development is under investigation, according to the police spokesperson.
