According to Daily Sun, the hoodlums also raided a bank and took over the community. The robbers numbering about 50, sacked the police station before robbing the bank.
A witness said in the robbers appeared in commando style and took the police unawares as they shot sporadically, leaving the police helpless.
The witness who spoke on the condition of anonymity said: “This was the first of its kind. I have not seen that kind of thing until Wednesday when the hoodlums were shooting as if we were in a war situation.
“After killing the policemen and injuring four others, the robbers shot their way into the bank vault, from which they carted away money in sacks and Ghana-must-go bags.”
Four customers of the bank were shot dead while 12 others were injured. The robbers came through Gulu-Lapai road in three vehicles. They later broke up into two groups.
“One group blocked the three major roads leading to the town, to ward off security personnel.
“They shot into the air and held the entire community hostage. There was panic and commercial activities were grounded as people scampered for safety. Traders hurriedly closed shop.”
Niger State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Austin Agbolahor, yesterday led other senior officers on visit to the scene.
However, the police have not made any official statement on the attack.
