Gunmen kill 2 brothers in Adamawa

24 August 2012, 07:19

Michika - Unidentified gunmen have killed two brothers, injuring another in Michika, Adamawa, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Confirming the incident on Thursday in Yola, the Spokesman of the Adamawa State Police Command, DSP. Ibrahim Mohammed, told NAN that the incident occurred on Wednesday when the three brothers were closing their shop for the day.

"The three persons shot were brothers. Two died while the third is now in hospital," Mohammed said, disclosing that another yet to be identified person, was also killed the same day in Michika.

He, however, confirmed the arrest of some suspects in Mubi by a joint police/military patrol team.

"Some arrests were made in Mubi but I cannot give you the details in order not to jeopardise on-going investigations," Mohammed said.

NAN reports that there has been series of gun attacks in Mubi with the latest taking place on Sallah day when gunmen stormed the house of the Chairman of the Mubi North Local Government Council, Alhaji Sahabo Jauro, killing two of his visitors and dispossessing the rest of their money and handsets.

Jauro whose predecessor, Alhaji Umaru Tafida, was killed in a similar attack two years ago escaped unhurt.
