At a wake for late Mama Sule Achin Adingi, gunmen attacked Imande Abul village in Mbater Council Ward of the Logo Local Government Area and killed four mourners, including one Tseen Amos Adagi, while five others were injured.
DSP Catherine Anene, the command’s spokesperson, made the disclosure in a statement on Monday, saying that a squad of police detectives attacked the thieves’ hideaway in Tse Nom in the state’s Ukum local government area on Sunday, November 28.
