The policeman who was shot by suspected bandits during a gunfight in Kebbi State is dead. Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Abdulqadir Garba Hardo died after being shot in the leg while leading the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Tactical Squad in a gun duel with armed men at Tsamiya town in Bagudo Local Government of the state.
The gunshot fractured his bone and he died at a hospital in Gusau, Zamfara State capital on Monday May 10. Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state has reportedly donated a cash gift of N2m to the family of the late DSP.
He described the late DSP Hardo as a gallant and courageous officer who performed his duty professionally and prayed Allah to grant him mercy and his family the perseverance to bear the loss.
“I am not going to pay allegiance to individuals in the government,” he added.
Bawa pointed out that though he was young, he had paid the price on the job, having been among the pioneer staff of EFCC, rising through the ranks to reach the top.
He stated, “I rose through the ranks. The only job I know after graduation is the EFCC, which I joined in 2004. I rose through the ranks from an ordinary team member, to the first EFCC team leader from the regular staff of the EFCC.
“I became a sectional head, became the zonal head in Ibadan, zonal head in Port Harcourt, and zonal head in Lagos. Lagos is the biggest operational hub of the EFCC with over 600 personnel. Port Harcourt is next to it in terms of complexity and staff strength. I happen to be the first EFCC regular staff to head three different zones before my appointment as the chairman.”
