Suspected gunmen numbering 40, at the weekend, invaded Ido Ekiti Divisional Police Station in Ido/Osi local gov­ernment area of Ekiti State and killed a police inspec­tor on duty during the raid on the station.
The armoury of the po­lice station was emptied by the dare-devil robbers while the roof top of the station was blown off with the aid of dynamite and the entire police station, including the asbestos were destroyed during the raid.
A detective attached to the station, who craved an­onymity, revealed that the suspected robbers invaded the police station and de­stroyed virtually every­where while ransacking all rooms while all the doors were broken in the course of searching for ammuni­tion.
The incident had ren­dered the police officers at­tached to the station devas­tated, as their countenances portrayed that they were in deep mourning.
The source added that the robbers drove in reck­lessly through the gate while some scaled the fence and headed into the main building where the armoury was located.
He said few policemen were on guard during the raid, which he said made the attack to be more suc­cessful and fierce.
Upon entering the sta­tion, the source said the heavily armed bandits rained bullets on the police inspector and he was said to have died on the spot.
“They drove in recklessly and took over the entire police station. Some even scaled the fence and took strategic positions. They shot sporadically into the air and destroyed virtually every room.
“Our suspicion was that they chose to loot the ar­moury because that was why they first attacked after demobilizing our men. In fact, they emptied the entire place”.
When asked whether they came to free a high profile detainee or robbery suspect, the police officer said: “That is not true because nobody was detained in the cell as at the time the incident took place”.
Efforts to reach the Po­lice Public Relations Offi­cer of the state command, Mr Alberto Adeyemi were unsuccessful as all his mo­bile phones were switched off.
But a police officer con­firmed that the PPRO had visited the station to get first hand information about the incident.
