Makata said sources reliably informed him on Sunday that the police officer with wife and children, were on transit from Damboa to Biu for Eid break but unfortunately went through a banned route.


He said it was later reported that the police officer and his family were abducted by suspected ISWAP operatives around Shokotoko general area located approximately 73/km south of Damboa.


“However, later in the evening , the wife and his children were released, while the police officer was executed by the terrorists,” Makata said.
