A Police Station located in Ngurore of Adamawa State has come under attack by some unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.
The gunmen who came in two groups, carried out the attack on Sunday, 10th October, Naija News understands.
In executing the attack, one group focused on the security operatives in the Police Station, majorly to serve as a needed distraction for the other group which attacked a house in the area and abducted a woman identified as Hauwa Umaru and her daughter.
Confirming the development, the Police Public Relations Officer in Adamawa State, Sulaiman Ngurore said the attack occurred around 2am on Sunday.
The Police spokesperson added that no casualty was recorded during the incident while operational assets have been deployed to recover the kidnapped persons.
