33 Artillery Brigade of the Nigeria Army, Bauchi, has said that the troops deployed at Panshanu check-point along Bauchi-Jos road opened fire on a bus that drove dangerously through the checkpoint and refused to stop when flagged down on suspicion that it might be conveying terrorists or armed criminal elements, while approaching the check point.
However, one person died and 3 others sustained injuries in the process.
This was contained in a press release by Major Joseph Adekunle Afolasade, Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, and made available to newsmen in Bauchi Sunday.
