Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force’s DFI-IRT, acting on intelligence, engaged in a dramatic showdown with a notorious bandit group in the outskirts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on February 5th, 2024.
According to a statement by Spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police, alerted to the presence of the group led by Isa Dei-Dei, swiftly moved to apprehend them upon receiving actionable information about their hideout.
Upon arrival, the bandits attempted to evade capture upon sighting the advancing police force. A fierce exchange of gunfire ensued as the operatives pursued the fleeing criminals.
In the intense confrontation, Isa Dei-Dei, the notorious leader of the syndicate, met his demise. Despite his neutralization, other members of the group managed to escape albeit with gunshot wounds sustained during the skirmish.
The Nigeria Police Force has called upon the public, especially healthcare professionals, to remain vigilant and report any individuals seeking medical attention for gunshot injuries. Such information could be crucial in the ongoing efforts to track down and bring to justice the remaining members of the bandit syndicate.
