Police officer killed in Adamawa.

A police inspector was shot dead in
Adamawa State Tuesday, witnesses and the
authorities said.
The officer was killed by a local vigilante
group for refusing to stop at a checkpoint,
while riding a motorcycle.
The military had last week placed a ban on
commercial motorcyclists as part of efforts
to check insurgency in the state.
The vigilante group attacked the officer in
Ganye, southern part of the state.
According to a witness, Semsire Ayuba, the
inspector, who was not wearing his
uniform at the time of the incident, failed to
stop when asked by the vigilante group to
do so.
“It was after he refused to stop, one of them
shot him,” the witness said.
Police spokesman, Othman Abubakar, said
he did not have details of the attack, but
confirmed receiving the report.
The military announced the ban of
motorcycles across the state last week with
effect from Monday, August 17.
