Police officers on Sunday repelled an attack by unknown gunmen on their station at Adogo in Kogi state, police spokesman CP Emmanuel Ojukwu disclosed on Monday.

“About 2100 hours of Sunday, September 21, 2014, unknown gunmen unleashed heavy attack on Adogo police Station, in the Ajaokuta local government area of Kogi state, from different directions of Okene, Ajaokuta, and one other route, apparently desirous of carting away police arms. The policemen on duty swiftly took positions and returned fire. The heavy dynamite launched by the attackers demolished and set fire on part of the Station,” he explained.

Ojukwu said the desire of the hoodlums to cart away weapons was aborted, as the police officers successfully evacuated the arms from the station to safety.

“As of the time of this report, no human casualty was recorded on the part of police, while some of hoodlums, escaped with bullet wounds. However, the area has been reinforced while frantic efforts are ongoing to track down the fleeing hoodlums,” he added.
