February 07, (THEWILL) – Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) have neutralised a notorious bandits’ leader, Isa Dei-Dei.
This is coming a few days after operatives of the FCT Command identified a kidnapper’s hideout in Bassa village and arrested the syndicate, including two women.
In a statement on Wednesday, Force Spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, said Dei-Dei was killed on Monday, by operatives of the Department of Force Intelligence Tactical Teams (DFI-IRT) during a raid on a bandits’ hideout in the suburbs of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
“Upon closing in on them, they sighted the police and fled. The operatives immediately went after them, which led to a fierce gun duel.
“In the process, the notorious Isa Dei-Dei was neutralised while other members of the syndicate managed to escape with gunshot injuries.
“We, therefore, urge members of the public, most especially medical practitioners, to call our attention to anyone or patients seen with gunshot wounds for further investigation,” Adejobi said.
