An attack by suspected hoodlums at Jaen Makera quarters in the Kano metropolis resulted in the death of one person and injuries to two policemen.

Commissioner of Police, AIG Usaini Gumel disclosed this on Thursday in Kano.

Gumel said that Garba died while receiving treatment at the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital, Kano, adding that his corpse has been released to his relatives for burial.

He said that the hoodlums who were carrying dangerous weapons defied the police presence deployed to the area and started attacking innocent people.

Gumel disclosed that more reinforcement from the police tactical team and nearby divisions was deployed to the area and peace was restored as the hoodlums fled.

The commissioner said that efforts are being intensified to identify and arrest the perpetrators.

He said some other groups of hoodlums on Wednesday engaged in street fighting, using dangerous weapons at Yan Dillalai and Jaen Makera, but were dispersed by the police team.

According to him, the two policemen, SC Wasilu Umar and PC Abdulmalik Yusif, who were injured during the incident, were treated and discharged from the hospital.

He said that a suspect, Umar Shuaibu was arrested for attacking Yusif, while a vehicle attached to Filin Hockey was destroyed.

The commissioner said that the command strives to address the underlying causes of violence and promote lasting peace and well-being of all individuals affected.

He said normalcy has returned to the area as police personnel are monitoring the situation.
