Brave lawmaker battles invading armed robbers; kills one, injures others



A member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Abdullahi Salame, displayed extraordinary gallantry when he took up invading armed robbers, killing one of them and injuring others. The gunmen had attacked his Bado area residence of Sokoto around 3am today.

“But by Allah’s powers, I was able to shoot and kill one, and injured some,” said Salame, who represents Gwadabawa/Illela federal constituency.

Sokoto State Police Command while confirming the incident said the robbery attempt was thwarted by the swift response of the joint Metropolitan Police Patrol.

In a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Muhammad Sadiq, the command said that it has commenced investigation into the incident.


“The command also calls for calm and enjoins residents of Sokoto to promptly tender any useful information that could speed up the arrest of the perpetrators or help the ongoing investigation,” it said.
