Headmaster Killed By NDLEA Officials Shooting Carelessly

Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on Sunday allegedly shot dead a primary head, Abubakar Inusa, in Nunku community, in the Akwanga area of Nasarawa State.

A witness, who did not want his name in print, said the NDLEA officials invaded the community at about 8pm and shot sporadically into the air.

He said during the shooting, Mr Inusa was hit by a bullet in the head and he died.

It was said that an identity card belonging to one Hassan Musa Abdullahi, a senior narcotics officer, was recovered at the scene of the shooting, as well as a bag containing Indian hemp and handcuffs.

The state Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Bello, who confirmed the incident, said it took the intervention of the police and the traditional ruler of Mada lan, the Chun Mada, Samson Yare, to quell the unrest that trailed the killing on Sunday.

“The roads were barricaded again on Monday, but the police persuaded the youths to reopen them,” Bello added.

When Punch visited the NDLEA office in Nasarawa, the commandant, Mr. Sumaila Ethan, was said to have travelled.
