“The gunmen stormed the vicinity on a Lexus SUV. Though they did not gain entrance into the building, they opened fire on security operatives at the gate. It was a surprise attack. One of the policemen was shot twice, while others fled.”

A few days ago, unknown  gunmen attacked a military base at Kolo Creek in Ogbia local government area of Bayelsa state. The bandits, who operated in a sports utility vehicle, stormed the army post, shot dead a guard and stole some arms and ammunition.
