The Security Council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, has set up a committee to investigate the killing of three police intelligence officers in Ibi, Jalingo, Taraba State.

The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, who disclosed this on Thursday, to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting of the national security council, said the committee will be constituted under the Defence Headquarters to unearth the truth on the incident.

Abubakar also revealed that the council evaluated the current strategy of managing internal security operations across the country.

He said: “The council also decided that the unfortunate incidents in Taraba State in Ibi, a committee will be setup under the defence headquarters, to critically look into the circumstances that led to the unfortunate incident.

”We are making substantial progress in all the areas of conflicts.”

He assured that the armed forces of Nigeria and other security agencies would continue to work to ensure the security of all.

The air chief added that they would also ensure that no individual or group of individuals undermine the territorial integrity of Nigeria.

The Nigeria Police Force had on Wednesday, accused some unidentified soldiers of shooting to death three police officers and a civilian along the Ibi-Jalingo Road, Taraba State, when they were taking an arrested suspect, Alhaji Hamisu to the command headquarters in Jalingo.

However, the Army spokesperson, Col. Sagir Musa, countered the police claims stating that the policemen allegedly refused to stop at a military checkpoint, and were trailed and shot dead by troops who had earlier received a distress call.
