Armed bandits attacked the Maraban Jos Divisional Headquarters in Kaduna State on Friday, injuring three Police officers, according to the police.

Muhammed Jalige, the state’s police spokesperson, said the gunmen stormed the facility about 11 a.m. on a mission to plunder the armory.

However, he asserted that the officers on the ground efficiently resisted the invasion and guarded the armory.

Mr. Jalige, in a statement with the press, said

The bandits came in large number in three Sharon utility vehicles and, in their desperate attempt to override the personnel on duty, shot sporadically in order to gain access into the divisional armoury.

However, the bandits met with professional and stiff resistance from the personnel on duty.

The gun duel between the bandits and the station guards lasted for some minutes.

However, the superior and tactical firepower of the police forced the bandits to retreat of which some have sustained fatal bullet wounds

The guards were able to retain the armory, the entire station, and other neighboring facilities at the division, Mr. Jalige continued.

Sadly, one Inspector and two Special Constabulary personnel sustained varying degrees of injuries and are currently receiving medical treatment.

Investigation into the incident has since commenced using the available evidence recovered from the scene as effort is geared towards apprehending the fleeing hoodlums
