KanyiDaily had reported that three policemen and a civilian who went to arrest a wanted kidnap kingpin identified as Alhaji Hamisu, were shot dead by unidentified soldiers along the Ibi-Jalingo Road, Taraba State, on Saturday, in an incident that the Nigerians Army said was a case of mistaken identities.
