Recall that ACP Rabo was travelling to Kaduna in his civil dress, with his private vehicle and without escort or any special security at the time of the incident.

He was not targeted as a cop. It was purely an opportunistic crime, indiscriminately and maliciously targeted at citizens using that particular road.

He was, perhaps, positionally unlucky at the time of the incident!
