They also abducted 16 other members of the community, including a medical doctor, in what seemed to be a serial assault on the settlement.

According to a source, the late JTF commander opened fire on sighting the bandits “not knowing that the bandits had closed in on his team.”

“The bandits opened fire and hit the commander in his legs and he fell. They then shot him in the head, shattering his skull. A resident, who was hit by bullets, died on his way to a hospital,” the source had added.

In the fresh attack on Monday, SaharaReporters learnt that scores of residents were also kidnapped from the New Millennium City Settlement.

The Nigerian police and the military authorities have yet to comment on the latest assault.
