Unknown gunmen allegedly invaded a police station in Kanoma district, Maru Local Government area, Zamfara, on Friday night, causing panic among residents.

An eye witness told NAN that residents of the area ran for cover when they heard gunshots in the town around 9 p.m.

Malam Musa Kanoma, the district head, said upon their arrival, the gunmen headed straight to the police station, firing shots and causing confusion in the area.

“We heard shouts of victory later on but no one could come out, as we did not know whether it was the police or their attackers.”

When contacted, however, the state Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Sanusi Amiru, confirmed the attack on the station by the gunmen.

Amiru, however, said the motive of the attack was not yet known.

He stated that there were exchange of gunfire between the police and the attackers who came in their large numbers.

He said although no policeman was wounded, many of the attackers, who were overpowered by the police, ran away with bullet wounds.

He called on members of the public, especially those in the surrounding villages to report cases of bullet wounds in their areas to the nearest security authorities. (NAN)
