30 men on motorcycles attack Kogi Police Command
At least, 30 suspected terrorists stormed the Kogi State Police Command, in Okenne on Sunday.
Kingsley Fanwo, Kogi Commissioner for Information and Communications, said local hunters, men of the state vigilante service collaborated with other security operatives to foil the attack.
He said one of the attackers was killed and several others sustained gun wounds.
“Two of their motorcycles were recovered as well as various arms and ammunition. Also, explosives meant to shatter the command were immediately detonated by experts,” he said.
The attack is the second one in less than two months in the state.
Fanwo urged “traditional medical homes and other medical facilities to report anyone with gun wounds to the nearest security formation.
He also said the local hunters are combing the bush for the fleeing attackers.
“The Governor, Yahaya Bello wishes to assure all Kogites and residents of the state that he will do everything humanly possible to secure their lives and property,” Fanwo stated.
