It was gathered that the armed group of ten men invaded the police station, shooting on sight before they gained access to the armoury and carted away arms and ammunition without any resistance.
“I counted about 10 of them moving toward the police station and firing ceaselessly without any resistance from policemen,” the eyewitness said.
There was no confirmation of casualty but some unconfirmed reports said a policeman might have been killed during the attack. Isa town is about 150 kilometres from the state capital, Sokoto.
Commissioner of Police Alhaji Sha’aibu Gambo, confirmed the attack. He said his men were able to repel the attackers and recovered some unexploded bombs at the scene. “No arrest was made for now but we are on their trail.” He said.
