The Panel that investigated the killing of some police and civilian in Taraba state has submitted its report to the Chief of Defence Staff General Abayomi Olonisakin. 

It said the killings were caused by poor communication and lack of inter-agency cooperation between the soldiers and policemen.

The panel indicted an Army captain and a police officer in the killings at a checkpoint in Taraba State during the rescue of a suspected kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Bala, known as Wadume.

The report also indicted the officers for non-adherence to the Standard Operating Procedure. It suggested that the indicted officers should be further investigated by the Army, the Police and Wadume.

The seven-man Board of Enquiry set up by the Defence Headquarters was headed by Rear Admiral Ibikunle Olaiya. Also the Acting Director, Defence Information, Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu, said in a statement that the indicted officers will face prosecution.
