Arms smugglers kill another DSS officer in Plateau

Barely two weeks after an operative of the Department of State Services (DSS) was killed in Katsina, another agent of the secret service identified as Barrister Muktar Modibbo has been killed in Plateau State during a shoot-out with arms smugglers.

Recall that two weeks ago, Bandits took a DSS from his residence behind the federal secretariat in Katsina. He was, however, murdered even after his abductors received N5 million as ransom.

Two weeks later, the security outfit has lost another agent after armed gunmen in a gunrunning ring opened fire at him and other officers during an operation.

A top security source within the DSS confirmed the demise of Modibbo who also worked with the legal department of the Outfit.

According to reports, the gunrunners, who supply illicit weapons to criminals were initially traced to Qu’anpan Local Government Area by the secret police but the operation was aborted after it was discovered that intel had leaked to the gunrunners, who then swiftly changed location.

The security source said after receiving new intelligence that the arms smugglers were in Shendam, a team was constituted to burst their operation.

The operation was, however, met with heavy shooting from the criminals, who were well equipped with sophisticated firearms and seemed to have had prior intel about the raid. The resulting gunfire led to the death of Modibbo,

“They (gunrunners) also took his weapon, a Galil Automatic Rifle, and a few other things,” the source added.
