About 20 gunmen Tuesday stormed Soro town in Ganjuwa LGA of Bauchi State, killing one person and snatching three vehicles.
The state spokesman, DSP Haruna Mohammed, said the stolen vehicles included a white Hilux van with registration number 206 UN 139, belonging to the United Nations, a white Toyota Hilux belonging to Bauchi State Television (BATV), while ownership of the third one is still under investigation.
DSP Haruna said suspects fired sporadically during the operation and a stray bullet hit one Bose Bappa Kari who died at the hospital while receiving treatment. He said police had been deployed to the area and neighbouring towns to track down the fleeing suspects.
