Some gunmen on Sunday attacked a police station in the Ashaka community in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State, using explosives.

The assailants set the station on fire and torched its operational vehicle donated by the community and Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC).

The state police spokesperson, Bright Edafe, said the gunmen were about 20 and threw improvised explosive devices (IEDs) at the station.

“It is pertinent to state that no life was lost and no arm was taken away. However, the police will not relent in ensuring that law and order are maintained in any community,” he said.

In another development, the operatives of the command shot dead six suspected kidnappers during a raid of their hideouts in the state.

The police added that they recovered one AK47 rifle, one pump action gun, and one AK47 magazine with 25 live ammunition.

The police said four suspects were arrested along the Bayelsa-Patani section of the East-West Road. Tactical operatives recovered a locally made Barretta pistol from the suspects.
