CHAOS As Gunmen Invade Police Station, What Happened next is shocking



Gunmen have invaded a police station in Ado Local Government Area of Benue State. In the process, the assailants killed three policemen on duty and injured two others.
The gunmen, who stormed the community about 2:30a.m. on Sunday on two motorcycles, also broke into the armoury of the police station and carted away all the arms.

Ado Local Government is close to Agatu where suspected Fulani herdsmen invaded recently and killed hordes of peasant farmers as well as women and children The Sunday killing of the policemen has caused panic among residents of the agrarian Ado community.

Most of them told New Telegraph correspondent that there was heavy shooting during the attack. One of the residents, Mr. Edeh Joseph, said he received a telephone call from one of the elders in Ogbe settlement that there were sporadic shootings in the village as if it was an attack by herdsmen.

He said: “The shooting continued for over 10 minutes and nobody came out of his house to see where it was happening. “At that point, we all started calling security agencies in the area, including the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) to find out what the problem was because it was as if the entire Igumale was under attack.”

Joseph disclosed that when the shootings stopped about 15 minutes later, people came out and discovered that the Igumale Police Station had been attacked and there was blood everywhere. According to him, one of the policemen on duty was shot dead while three others were badly wounded.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Moses Yamu, confirmed the attack. According to him, the assailants took away the arms of the policemen.
