According to reports, the incident occurred where the Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, Aminu Umar, was murdered by bandits, on Tuesday.
Details of the incident are still not in details, due to the fact that during the press time the Police Public Relations Officer in the State, DSP Isah Gambo could not be reached.
Daily Trust, however, reported that the jet targeted the wrong place in the operation launched against camps of bandits in the area, leading to the death of unspecified number of villagers.
