Armed Robbers attack Kogi Police Station with dynamites

Unknown gunmen have attacked Adogo Police station in Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi State, with dynamites in an attempt to loot the armoury, but they were repelled by the Policemen on duty.

The attempt by the  hoodlums to cart away arms, was aborted, as the Police successfully evacuated the arms from the station.

The attack which was carried out on Sunday with heavy dynamites, set the building on fire, according to a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, on Monday in Abuja.

The Police said no casualty was recorded by the men on duty, but some of the hoodlums, it said, escaped with bullet wounds, adding that the area has been reinforced while frantic efforts are ongoing to track-down the fleeing gunmen.
