One person in the residence of a police officer attached to the Inspector General of Police's Special Intelligence Response Team, ASP Aliyu Umar, in Zaria, Kaduna State, was killed when some bandits reportedly attacked the residence on Monday night.

The report says the bandits in large number stormed the police officer's residence shooting indiscriminately, while residents scampered for safety.

The officer said he was the target of the attack and that his house was riddled with bullets.

Umar said, "One Abubakar Aliyu was killed while an elderly man, Abubakar was shot in the chest and has been rushed to hospital.

“My house was full of people numbering more than 20, including my friend who arrived from Egypt, my aged mother and my siblings.

"When I heard shootings, I opened my entrance door thinking it was police officers on patrol, but I saw three people holding guns and I quickly went back in and shut the door then locked it."
