                                   “On the 13th June, 2021 at about 0500hrs the Command received a distress call through Divisional Police Officer Tudun Wada, Kaduna that unknown armed men invaded Jada road Tudun Wada, Kaduna in a bid to commit heinous crime in the area and disrupt the peace being enjoyed currently in the area.
“In view of the report, Police patrol team were immediately dispatched to the area. The hoodlums on sighting the Police patrol vehicle, started shooting berserkly. The Officers involved were very tactical in response and their operational sagacity succeeded in repelling the attack. 
“They recovered 24 rounds of live 7.62 x 39mm ammunitions; 30 polymer-cased 12-guage shotgun shells; a Toyota Corolla LE, Ash colour with Reg.No. ABJ 704 MX; a driver’s license and ATM cards.
