Details of how Alex Badeh, former Chief of Defence Staff was assassinated has been revealed by President of the Association of Industrial Security and Safety Operators of Nigeria (AISSON), Dr Ona Ekhomu.
okay News recalls that Alex Badeh was killed along Badeh-Keffi Road while he was coming back from his farm.
Speaking on how the military chief was murdered in a statement on Saturday, Ekhomu stated that “They executed an ambush on the general and his security detail. The goal of this close-quarter combat tactic was to overwhelm a superior force and leave the crime scene before reinforcements arrived.
“Ambush is one of the oldest but lethal tactics of warfare. In Gen. Badeh’s attack, the targeted violence resulted in an assassination, a kidnap and several casualties.
“They were obviously on a mission to kill the General. So it wasn’t bandits who were operating on that notorious stretch of the highway.
“The killers must have learned that the general frequented his farm, they must have monitored him to know the routes and times he travelled to Keffi, the composition of his protective detail.
“Given the amount of surveillance conducted by the killers, there must be observable evidence out there that can be used to nab them and bring them to book.
“This murder mystery must be resolved and the family must get closure.”
