3 other persons who were lodging in the hotel prior to the onrush sustained several degrees of injuries during the incident.
When contacted by DAILY POST, the FCT Police force Public Relations Officer, Josephine Adeh confirmed the incident.
“She said, “some gunmen attacked the hotel finally dark and constabulary officers engaged them in a gun battle. Unfortunately, one of our men paid the supreme terms”.
