The command’s public relations officer, Mohammed Ibrahim, told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Yola that the gunmen attacked the station at about 9: 25 p.m. on Wednesday.
Ibrahim said that the attackers fired shots and explosives during the operation.
“The station was burnt because of the explosives used. We lost two of our men and one other sustain injuries,” he said.
