Just as the Police in Sokoto are battling to contain the two incidents of bomb blasts, which occurred in the morning hours of yesterday, some unknown gunmen attacked the Arkilla Divisional office this evening at about 6.55pm.
According to Vanguard sources, two people approached the police division on a motor bike and opened fire and the Police also fired back and an exchange ensued. When Vanguard contacted the PPRO,DSP Sani Salihu, he confirmed the story but said that no casualty was recorded.
“This is true. Two unknown gunmen went to the Division on a motorcycle and started firing. There was exchange but, as I talk to you now, no casualty has been reported,” Salihu said. Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in Sokoto metropolis.
