The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Mr Joseph Kwaji, who confirmed the attack on Saturday in Jalingo, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that no casualties were recorded.

He said that the armed men stormed Karim-Lamido town at about 8.30p.m. on Friday and attacked the bank and the police station.

“Yes the attack by a criminal gang suspected to be armed robbers, took place Friday night.

“We are still investigating the situation; but there is calm in the area and our men are searching for the hoodlums,” he said.
