Niger Killing: Army lied, say police

The Niger State Police command yesterday said the Nigerian Army was being economical with the truth in its reasons for the invasion of Kpaidna and four other villages in Bosso Council of the state.
During the invasion last month, over 20 people, 11 of them soldiers, were killed, while several others were injured and property valued at millions of naira destroyed.
Following the incident, the state government set up a Judicial Commission of Inquiry to look into the remote and immediate causes of the disturbance and proffer recommendations on how to forestall future occurrence.
The state Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Zubairu Muazu, in his testimony said:
“There has never been any report of gun running or armed banditry in the area before the military invasion,” he said, pointing out that the Police had an outpost, which is five hundred metres from Kpaidna, where the incident occurred and “there has never been any report from the station about such incidents.”
