Our Ordeal in the Hands of Dare-Devil Robbers-Kaduna Policemen recount day armed robbers took them hostage

October 15, 2013

It was a case of a hunter being the hunted when dare devil robbers sacked a police station in Kaduna, Monday.

The gang of about 30 invaded the Makarfi Divisional Police Station located in the Makarfi Local Government Council area of the state and totally laid seige on it as they disarmed the policemen on duty.

According to one of the officers: “I was just about to go in and check some detainees when I heard gunshots. I rushed out to be face-to-face with bandits in flowing caftans, and some in tattered army uniforms shooting into the air and ordering us to come out and lie down on the road.

“They then started throwing explosives into the police station. The ground was shaking. They later moved to the bank (about 100 metres away) and started shooting and throwing explosives. Some of the robbers were standing over us, while the rest were at the bank.

“I don’t know the time they all left because they left one after the other. They may have been there for an hour. Later, we saw a military vehicle with soldiers and Mobile Policemen. We told them what happened and they drove eastwards, also shooting into the air,”.

“As far as I know, no one was injured, though they beat up some of us. I also heard they could not get any money from the bank.

The policemen appealed to government to provide surveillance and communication equipments for them as robbers are becoming more daring and more sophisticated.
