A police sergeant Tom Mohammed of the special intelligence response team was killed yesterday during a gun battle with kidnappers in Nasarawa Toto Forest in Nasarawa State. The kidnapping of a white expatriate was foiled successfully by the gallant IRT team and one of the kidnappers gunned down in the process.

The late Sgt Mohammed with Force Number F/No. 344862 was with a team investigating a kidnapping case at about 7:30am in Nassarawa Toto Local Government Area when they were ambushed.

According to reports, the kidnappers were in the bush waiting to abduct a white foreigner that was being driven in a white Pick Up van heading their way.

‘After the incident, Sgt Tom Mohammed was discovered to be missing in action; hence, a combined team of IRT and FSARS in Nasarawa and Divisional Patrol in Nassarawa State combed the entire forest and eventually on 2/2/2018 at about 0900hrs, they found his bullet-ridden body in the same forest.

May his Gentle Soul rest in perfect peace and May God give his family the fortitude to bear the great lost, Amen.
