There was pandemonium on Friday night at Ido-Ekiti, Ido-Osi LGA of Ekiti State, when some suspected gunmen numbering 40, invaded the Divisional Police Headquaters and killed a police inspector on duty during the attack.
The armoury of the police station was emptied, while the roof top was blown off with the aid of dynamite. A detective attached to the station, said: “They drove in recklessly and took over the entire police station. Some even scaled the fence and took strategic positions.
They shot into the air sporadically and destroyed virtually every room. Our suspicion was that they came to loot the armoury, because that was where they first attacked after demobilizing our men. In fact, they emptied the entire place."
