Gunmen on Wednesday attacked the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 12, Audu Madaki, in the Barde area of Kaduna, killing his orderly.
Mr Madaki and a yet-to-be-identified officer survived the attack but sustained gunshot wounds along Barde-Jargindi village.
They were on their way to the monthly conference of the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, and senior police officers from the rank of commissioners of police.
Top on the agenda is the security situation in the country which the IGP says is crucial to creating a pathway towards resolving these security issues in the country.
Part of the issues to be discussed is extortion and brutality by policemen, adequate protection of police barracks and formations, countering ambush attacks, as well as lectures on civility and professionalism.
