The spokesman for the command, Bala Elkana, disclosed in a statement on Sunday that the 45-year-old attempted to kill his wife, Comfort, with a knife in the Bariga area of the state.

“ISWAP executes four more, releases video. All four are male humanitarian workers of Action Against Hunger abducted since July, 2019. The only female amongst them, Grace Taku, according to ISWAP, is condemned to life of slavery,” he tweeted.

No group has asserted responsibility for the attack yet, but fighters linked to the Islamic State and al-Qaeda routinely ambush soldiers and civilians in a campaign to sow division, gain recruits and seize territory.

An eye witness from the area said the assailants who were in a vehicle shot the policemen as soon as they arrived the check point but the driver of the Police vehicle survived the attack as he ran into the bush.
