JUST IN: Gunmen Attack Police Headquarters


Gunmen were said to have attacked the Adamawa State Police Headquarters, Jimeta, Yola North Local Government Area, in the early hours of Wednesday, sending residents of Yola into panic.

According to Daily Trust, the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Nguroje, confirmed the attack, but said things were under control.
Nguroje said, “The attack was repelled, but the identities of those behind it was unknown.”

The newspaper quoted a source as alleging that the attackers were military personnel on a revenge mission, following the alleged killing of a military officer by the police.

Although the newspaper said it could not independently verify if military personnel were involved, but the police said investigations were ongoing to ascertain the cause of the attack and those behind it.

NewsBreakNaija had earlier reported that there was a faceoff last Friday between officials of the EFCC and some personnel of the Nigerian Air Force at the Kaduna Zonal Command of the anti-graft agency.

The NAF personnel were said to have stormed the commission’s office in an attempt to release their colleagues earlier arrested by EFCC operatives for allegedly attempting to forcibly release fraud suspects from custody.

The anti-graft agency noted that its operatives arrested five suspects at an eatery located in the Barnawa area of the state on Monday following credible intelligence about their alleged internet-related fraud activities.
