July 14, 2016 – Police Arrest 6 DSS Officers For Accidentally Killing Mother Of 5 On Abuja Kaduna Expressway

A angry mob on Wednesday blocked the Kaduna- Abuja Expressway after officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) accidentally killed a traveller at Jere town, about 100 kilometres to Kaduna. A witness told our correspondent that the stray bullet killed a woman inside a Kaduna-bound commercial vehicle which she boarded in Abuja with her five children.

According to him, the incident occurred about 2:15p.m., when the DSS operatives mistakenly opened fire on the vehicle as they attempted to shoot at another one. It was not clear what offence the erring driver committed and from where the DSS operatives started pursuing the vehicle.

“We only saw the DSS operatives, about six of them, arrive in two Hilux vans. Immediately they saw a vehicle coming, they tried to stop the driver but he refused to stop so they shot at him,“But unfortunately they missed their target and hit the commercial vehicle conveying the victim and her five children. She died on the spot. – a witness said

This angered motorists who witnessed the incident and they blocked the road.” It was learnt that it took the intervention of the state Police Commissioner, Alhaji Adamu Ibrahim, who appealed to the motorists before they removed the blockage.

Ibrahim confirmed the incident to journalists. He said the police had arrested the DSS officials who shot the woman.

  1. This is quite unfortunte. Seriously, some of these men in uniform ought not to be given riffle. They ain‘t well trained to handle guns. Give them catapult and stones instead.

    May her soul rest in peace.


  2. They should stop telling us all d time that they mistakenly shot someone, if they are not trained to handle a gun why give them one in d first place. So what now happens to those children she left behind.
    We are sick and tired of hearing dis accidental discharge of guns, maybe d citizens should start killing any officer they are able to apprehend doing this type of things, maybe then would the govt start giving the officers proper training in handling guns.
    Enough is enough abeg.

  3. Government should therefore take full responsibility of the careless killing from that untrained officer. Now the children of the deceased is on there neck. And that officer should be dismissed and be charge for murder. It is by so doing the Government will send a clear message to the rest officers in all military wing that it has 0 tolerance for any officers who claim to have accidentally discharge there bullets to kill innocents Nigerian.

  4. after arresting what next? they should be killed too. imagine the woman nd her kids wipe out in a day.
