Just early this month when terrorist group bombed and killed three policemen at Adavi police station in Kogi, on Friday, terrorists again threw bombs into another police station, killing lone policeman on duty.
It was gathered that the attack on the Police Area Command at Eika-Ohizenyi in Okehi local government area of Kogi State occured early Friday morning.
Details of the attack as reported by the Leadership news media reads thus;
Unknown gunmen have attacked a Police Area Command office at Eika-Ohizenyi in Okehi local government area of Kogi State where a Policeman on duty, Mr Jibril, popularly known as Yellow was killed.
A resident of the area, Mallam Momoh Abubakar, told our correspondent that the attackers invaded the station around 12:15am, saying the first explosive they threw into the building made heavy sound that woke up many residents, who were sleeping while the second explosive, according to him, brought down part of the building.
He added that the attackers had a field day as they operated for more than two hours without any response from either security agents or the people of the community.
He further revealed that the only police officer on duty was killed in the process of the attack while the only operational vehicle in the police area command was also destroyed.
According to him, bullets perforated windows of Eika community central mosque and a Catholic church near the area command when the daredevil gunmen launched the attack.
“I am using this medium to appeal to security operatives to be proactive and respond quickly to this type of incident because the gunmen spent more than two hours operating freely without any interference.
“The first attack of the station occurred on Friday and this second one which happened after five years also took place on Friday and to our surprise no body has been arrested in connection to the attack.
“As I am talking to you now there is serious fear and apprehension in Eika community as people remained indoors for fear of being attacked by gunmen. We are appealing to government to beam its searchlight in this area because the attack is becoming unbearable,” Abubakar said.
Meanwhile, the corpse of the slain policeman has been deposited at the Obangede General hospital mortuary.
In his reaction, the Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Mr Edward Ebuka, who also confirmed the attack on the police area command in Okehi, pledged that no stone would be left unturned till the perpetrators of the heinous crime are brought to book.
