According to a report reaching us from Sahara Reporters, armed bandits on Sunday morning attacked a Divisional Police Station in Adamawa state.

The incident reportedly occurred in Ngurore, a town located on the outskirts of Yola, the state capital. Eyewitnesses said that the attackers entered around 5 am.

It was gathered that the armed bandits divided themselves into two groups; one group attacked a nearby police station, while the other group abducted a woman and her daughter in the area.

Though the bandits opened fire on the police station, the police spokesperson in the state, DSP Suleiman Ngiroje, said that no life was lost at the station, and security men are doing their best to get the criminals.

Here's the strategy the bandits used in the attack.

The first group launched an attack on the police station so that group 2 would have enough time to kidnap the wife and daughter of Alhaji Umuru. That was the only nearby police station capable of thwarting their mission. This proves that bandits attack police stations to weaken the security in an area they want to operate.

Almost all the attacks by bandits on security camps in the northern part of Nigeria occurred at night when fewer security men are on duty.

This is a time for the police to tighten security in their stations at night. They can do this by increasing the number of policemen that work at night, and by arming them with heavy guns to withstand an attack from over 50 bandits.

Since these criminals take advantage of the night to attack police stations, security should be tighter at night.
