The residents of Ungwan Shanu area in Kaduna received a shock when they came out for their early morning prayers on Tuesday as they discovered the corpse of a Nigerian Policeman.
The policeman was found to have sustained several gunshot wounds to the chest, stomach and shoulders and these injuries must have led to his death. A member of the community said that the Nigerian Police Force was contacted as soon as the body was discovered.
It is assumed that the dead policeman was on his way home when he came across armed robbers who shot him dead, took his service weapon and left his body around SCOA Motors while they were returning from an operation or on their way to one.
The Police Relationship Officer of the Kaduna State command has confirmed the death of a policeman and informed that the command would release an official statement concerning the unfortunate incident.
