Terrorists Hit SARS Headquarters In Abuja!

Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect struck again on Monday as daring gunmen hit the headquarters of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force in Abuja.

Street Journal gathered that the early morning attack was carried out to free some suspected members of the sect who were being detained in the police formation. Less than 24 hours before, two suicide bombers attacked a church located inside the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji, Kaduna State.

A statement released by Frank Mba of the Public Relations Office of the Nigeria Police Force confirmed that “there was an exchange of gunfire as the policemen on duty responded quickly”. Mr Mba also stated that “over 30 suspects in detention brokje out of the cells in an attempt to escape.”  It was also contained in the statement that “efforts made to capture the suspects were successful; so far 25 of the suspects have been re-arrested while five (5) suspects originally being held in relation to robbery related offences are currently at large”. According to the statement, “no suspect held for terror related charges, escaped, no explosive or Improvised Explosive Device related materials were used in the botched attack.”

The Police Force enjoined the public to continue to go about their lawful duty without fear or intimidation as adequate strategies have been put in place to guarantee the general security and safety of all Nigerians.
