According to CP Ali:
”Actually what happened is that at about 1:45am this morning, we got information about attack on Umutu Police Station which was repelled by our men.
“Having put up that gallant fight, we lost two constables who were shot dead while an ASP died of heart attack in the process. He wasn’t shot which means that he was shocked and the shock killed him. He was fuming from the mouth.
“So, we were able to repel the attack. Our men killed two of them but because they came with vehicles, they quickly moved their bodies away. But to the glory of God, the station is safe. No arm was lost.”
