The identities of some of the officers who lost their lives in an ambush by terrorists in Abuja have been unveiled.
The deceased officers, who were attached to the Presidential Guards Brigade, were reportedly ambushed after they visited the Nigeria Law School in Bwari following a distressed call from the authorities of the school.
The school management was said to have alerted that terrorists had dropped a letter indicating an imminent attack.
