Gunmen on Saturday killed a policeman and wounded another in a raid on a police station in Bauchi State, a police officer said.

The gunmen launched the attack late Saturday in the town of Itas, about 200 kilometres from the state capital Bauchi, hurling explosives into the police station and opening fire on policemen, leading to an hour-long shootout.

According to a police officer, “The gunmen threw explosives into the police station, setting it on fire” and killing a police Inspector.

Another policeman was wounded in the shootout and two nearby police homes were burnt.

Bauchi State Police Commissioner, Mr. Mohammed Ladan, confirmed the attack but said he had no details yet.

It was not clear who was behind the incident, but Boko Haram has been blamed for series of attacks on police stations and banks in the area although criminal gangs have also carried out similar raids under the guise of the sect.
