MILITARY ACTION

 


KADUNA STATE

Security operatives rescue kidnapped Chinese citizen, two others in Kaduna.

A Chinese and two other persons who were kidnapped by bandits along the Kaduna-Abuja highway in Kaduna state have been rescued by security operatives.

Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mohammed Jalige, confirmed this in a statement issued on Tuesday.

He said the police and military teams of Operation Puff Adder and Operation Thunder Strike had during a joint operation had earlier in the day intercepted a group of armed bandits
while on a mission at Sabon Sara village attempting to gain access to the Kaduna-Abuja Highway.

It was gathered that the security operatives observed the suspicious movement of the bandits and courageously engaged the bandits in a gun duel, thereby leading to the rescue of
three kidnap victims, including a Chinese citizen and two others, while the bandits fled, abandoning eight of their motorcycles.

The police spokesman further said that the rescued victims have been taken to a hospital for medical attention, while efforts are on with a view to arresting the injured bandits.

This is even as he called on the nearby communities and beyond to report any person seen nursing a suspected gun injury to the nearest security formation as quick action will be taken.

ABIA STATE

JUST IN: Onee killed as fire razes petrol station in Abia.

One person was killed on Wednesday when a fire razed a filling station in Aba,
Abia
State
.

The incident occurred at about 5 a.m. at the filling station, Chibayno, along Ikot Ekpene Road.

A witness, who identified himself simply as Tochukwu, told PREMIUM TIMES that the inferno started when a truck discharging its content, at a suspected oil bunkering company close
to the station, caught fire.

“They have up to four trucks that usually bring bunkering materials to them which they transfer to their tanks and distribute (to customers).

“So, when they were transloading, the truck caught fire and the whole place was reduced to ashes,” he said.

He said firefighters later came and successfully put off the fire, although the damage had been done before they arrived.

“I am seeing one person lying dead now, but some people ran off the station even as fire was burning them. But I can’t say if they died later,” Mr Tochukwu added.

When contacted, the Acting Director, Abia State Fire Service, Arua Nnanna, confirmed the incident to PREMIUM TIMES.

He expressed suspicion that there was an illegal oil business going on in the area.

Mr Nnanna, who also confirmed that one person was burnt to death, said he deployed firefighters to the area and that the situation had been brought under control.

“My worry is that I don’t know what is going on at that time. Is it the actual time for them to do sales? That means there is an illegal activity that’s going on there that might
have caused that kind of inferno,” he said.

“And I noticed that a lot of trucks were parked within that area. Another thing is that there was a casualty. Somebody was burnt,” Mr Nnanna said.

The fire chief said he would report to the state government for decisive action as soon as he was done gathering the details of the incident.

KANO STATE

One dies, another injured as three storey building collapses in Kano.

Abdulkadir Nasiru, a 20-year-old construction worker, lost his life while Nasiru Shafiu, his co-worker, sustained injuries as a three-storey building collapsed in Kanti Kwari textile
market in Kano State on Tuesday.

The third floor of the building was under construction while the second and first floors of the building had been completed before it collapsed around 12:35 pm.

A source at the scene told Daily Post that most buildings in the market are not built to professional standards. According to him, people indiscriminately add extra floors to their
buildings without professional advice.

Saminu Yusif, spokesperson of the Kano State Fire Service, while confirming the incident, attributed the cause of the incident to the use of substandard building materials.

He explained, “We received a distress call around noon on Tuesday about the incident. A three-storey building under construction collapsed in Unity Road, Kantin Kwari market.”

The spokesman stated that two persons were trapped inside the building, saying that one Abdulkadir Nasir, a 20-year-old, was rescued while the other, Naziru Shafiu, a 30-year-old,
was recovered dead.

He added that the corpse was evacuated to Nasarawa Specialist Hospital.
