Some unknown gunmen reportedly attacked a police station in Niger State on Thursday, killed three personnel and abducted several others.

Reports obtained by Naija News claimed that the terrorists yesterday stormed Ishau under the Kafin-koro Police Division of Paikoro Local Government Area of the state and killed three officers in a gun duel.

Other personnel at the station according to The Nation, took to their heels after seeing their colleagues shot by the gunmen.

The report revealed further that the gunmen also conducted a village-to-village raid in the Kafin-koro area as 11 communities which include Zubakpere, Kuna, Aboloso, Kudami, Dakolon Daji, Nugwazi, Amale, Adunu, Ishau and parts of Beni.

During the village raid, they reportedly kidnapped no fewer than nine indigenes including a village head, four of his children and five women from six communities in the local government area.

Naija News understands that the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Wasiu Abiodun who is a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) could not be reached at the time this report was filed.

Abiodun could not respond to his calls nor did he reply to the messages sent across to him.

Meanwhile, the Benin Republic authorities have been urged by the President of Agbekoya Worldwide, Kamorudeen Okiki, to release Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho or the group would use traditional means.

Okiki stated this while speaking at a peaceful rally held in Osogbo, where the group called for restructuring of the country.

The President after handing over a letter containing a seven-point demand of the group to Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, in his palace, condemned the increase in corruption in government.

He said, “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal. We will continue to say that. We know that it is the Federal Government that is holding Igboho in Benin Republic, but we are telling Benin Republic authorities now to legally release him using their court.

“They should release him legally and quickly because they are not taking him to court again, or we will use our traditional means and powers to take Igboho out of detention.

“We are Agbekoya, if they don’t release Sunday Igboho legally, we are going to take him out of Benin Republic. They will just see that Sunday Igboho is out of their prison.”
