Major AG Mohammed has been killed by terrorists masquerading as bandits.

According to security analyst and counter insurgency expert, Mr Zagazola Makama, on Friday, Major AG Mohammed, died while confronting bandits.

He said, “The news of the demise of Major Ag Mohammed of 17 brigade Katsina state, Operation Hadarin DAJI, is indeed heart wrenching.

”Mohammed paid the supreme price while combating bandits in the North West of Katsina State. Until his death he serves as the command Covering yantumaki,Dan Ali and Kankara Axis. He was one of the most gallant, courageous and highly dedicated officers.

“Nigeria has lost many gallant officers and soldiers to the bullets of Boko Haram (BH) insurgents, banditry, and other insecurities.

“We therefore acknowledge with respect the services of our heroes—some of whom we admire for their courage, and outstanding achievements coupled with noble qualities that have laid down their lives for us to live,” the security expert said in a post on his official X handle.

Meanwhile, his killing is coming barely a week after Nigerian Army also lost two captains and four other soldiers in a deadly ambush in Niger State.
