Gunmen kill 3 policemen in Kogi station attack


Gunmen suspected to be bandits in the early hours of Saturday, attacked the Adavi police station in Kogi State, killing three policemen.

Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), William Ovye Aya, confirmed this in a statement issued in Lokoja Saturday.

He said, “The command received report of the unfortunate incident at Adavi Police Division, where some hoodlums attacked the station from the opposite direction shooting sporadically, but were repelled by the men on duty and operatives of the Quick Response Unit who were on special operations at the Local Government.”

He said the command lost three of its officers during the gun duel while the hoodlums fled with gunshot wounds as they could not get access to the station.

Aya said the state’s commissioner of police, CP Edward Egbuka, has deployed a team of tactical operatives to the area to restore normalcy, while trailing the hoodlums with a view to apprehending and bringing them to book.

The command called on the people of Adavi and adjoining communities to be on the lookout and report anybody seen with bullet wounds to the police or any other security forces nearest to them.
