Family members of late Mark Ediale, a police inspector who was one of those allegedly killed by army officers in Taraba State are demanding for justice.

At a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, the elder brother to the slain police officer, Andrew Ediale, said the family is not after any form of compensation from the government.

Rather, according to him, the family is only seeking a thorough investigation that will bring all the perpetrators to book.

He, therefore, called on the Federal Government and international bodies to intensify efforts towards ensuring justice.

The Nigeria Police Force through its spokesman, DCP Frank Mba had said that soldiers killed three officers of the Force and a civilian while on investigative activities within the Ibi area of Taraba.

According to him, the incident occurred when they went to arrest one Alhaji Hamisu who had been indicted in a series of high-profile kidnap incidents in the State.

But the Acting Director Of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, troops of 93 Battalion Nigerian Army Takum, said they initially thought the officers were kidnappers and hence, exchanged fire with them, only to discover that they were members of an intelligence response team on a covert operation from Police Force Headquarters in Abuja.
