” While we embarked on an intensive manhunt for the fleeing attackers, both the dead and the injured victims were evacuated to hospital,” he said.

According to him, reinforcement has been drafted to the area for intensive combing and patrol, with a view to forestalling further breakdown of law and order or reprisal attacks, as well as the arrest of perpetrators.

He said the Commissioner of Police, Umar Muri, was saddened by the attack and appealed for calm as he reiterated the Command’s commitment to apprehend the culprits.

“The Command calls on members of the public to continue to assist the Police with useful information that could help in addressing these challenges and for the possible arrest of these criminals,” Kajuru said.
