Police men returning from a confidence-building mission in remote villages were attacked by suspected herdsmen. The herdsmen opened fire on them in Tse Akpam village, near Azege town.

“We had had an encounter around Azege when a team of mobile police went on confidence patrol,” said Mr. Owoseni said while confirming the incident on Saturday night. “When they were coming back at a point in Azege, they started hearing gunfire from inside the bush suspected to be from the herdsmen. There was a serious exchange of gunfire.”

The attackers also burnt a police Toyota Hilux van after the officers inside fled into nearby bushes
The police said they’re expecting confirmation of casualties on the side of the attackers, but no suspects had been arrested.
