Police Foil Attack On Students In Kebbi State

The Kebbi Police Command said on Monday that it had foiled an attempt by unknown gunmen to attack the Kebbi State College of Basic and Advanced Studies in Yauri, headquarters of Yauri Local Government Area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Benjamin Onwuka, told the Newmen in Birnin Kebbi that the incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday.

Onwuka, however, dismissed insinuations that the attackers were insurgents.

He stated that normalcy had been restored in the institution as both the students and residents of the area had resumed their normal daily activities.

The police commissioner called on residents of the area to remain law abiding and to avoid spreading rumours.

Onwuka, however, appealed to the public to continue to assist the police with relevant information that would assist security agencies to contain crime in the state.

Meanwhile, a student of the college, who pleaded anonymity, told  newsmen that the gunmen gained entry into the school’s premises at about 2 a.m. on Saturday.
