Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have foiled a robbery attack and recovered ammunition and an operational vehicle.
Spokesperson of the command, ASP Muhammed Jalige, who disclosed this in a statement said that on Sunday, June 13 at about 0500hrs, the Command received a distress call through Divisional Police Officer Tudun Wada that unknown armed men invaded Jada road in a bid to commit heinous crime and disrupt the peace being enjoyed currently in the area.
“The hoodlums on sighting the Police patrol vehicle, started shooting berserkly. The Officers involved were very tactical in response and their operational sagacity succeeded in repelling the attack. They recovered twenty four (24) rounds of live 7.62 x 39mm ammunitions; thirty (30) polymer-cased 12-guage shotgun shells; a Toyota Corolla LE, Ash colour with Reg.No. ABJ 704 MX; a driver’s license and ATM cards,” Jalige stated.
“It was a successful counteroffensive devoid of any injury to the Operatives, while the hoodlums escaped with bullet wounds considering the observed volume of blood spilled and stains at the scene.” he added.
The Command, therefore, requested information about any person(s) found with bullet wounds, adding that such should be reported to the Police for immediate action.
