Bandits Operating along the Magama Gumau Road in Bauchi are suspected to have killed the Garrison Commander, 33 Artillery Brigade Command, Colonel Mohammed Barack.
A top officer of the brigade command who craved anonymity confirmed the development to Channels Television.
According to him, the incident occurred on Sunday night while the victim was returning to Bauchi from Kaduna. His power bike was said to have developed a fault, forcing him to stop on the road.
Investigations into the circumstances surrounding the death of the Brigade Commander is said to be underway.
A source reveals that a military delegation from Bauchi has been sent to Kano for the funeral, in accordance with Islamic tenets which demand immediate burial.
Bandits either operating loosely as Boko Haram Islamist insurgents, Fulani herdsmen militia, cross border terrorists or armed robbers have held large parts of North East, North Central and North West Nigeria hostage without respite for many years now.
