An eyewitness, Mr Segun Thomas, told NAN that the robbery operation lasted almost one hour.

“The robbers came in two vehicles – a bus and a car – with which they also escaped from the town.

NAN learnt that the car, believed to have been snatched from its owner, was later abandoned around Kizito College, Isanlu.

Mr William Aya, spokesman of the Police Command in Kogi, confirmed the robbery incident and the invasion of the Police Station, but added that the casualty figure was “still hazy”.

“The Commissioner of Police, Mr Ede Ayuba, has dispatched the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operation, to Isanlu to ascertain the true situation,” he told NAN.

Aya promised to brief the press “as soon as details are available”. (NAN)
