The spokesman of the state police command, Mohammed Jalige, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Kaduna.

He added that the bandits shot sporadically as they tried to gain access into the Division’s armoury but met stiff resistance from the personnel on duty.

“Investigations into the incident had commenced using the available evidence recovered from the scene while efforts have been intensified to apprehend the hoodlums.”
