Ahmadu Fintiri, governor of Adamawa, says the violent clash between operatives of the Nigerian army and police officers in the state has been resolved.

On Wednesday, Jacob Daniel, a police inspector, was killed after some soldiers attacked the police command headquarters in Yola north LGA of the state.

According to Afolabi Babatola, commissioner of police in Adamawa, the officer died during the gun duel between the two sets of security operatives.

Babatola said soldiers had stormed the police facility over a “conflict” with some officers at the Target Junction in Yola north LGA.
