Nov 10, 2012 – Boko Haram Attacks Yobe Police Station, Kills 3 Officers

On Friday the 9th of November, 2012 some suspected Boko Haram militants attacked a police station in Buni Yadi community in Damaturu, Yobe State, Nigeria killing 3 police officers immediately.

The gunmen also stormed Gujba LGA on Friday morning shooting at random.

A resident who witnessed the shooting said the gun-battle lasted for 30 minutes as the police effort to restrict the gunmen from entering the station became futile.

The heavily armed suspected Boko Haram militants overpowered the officers killing 3 before making their escape.

JTF spokesperson, Lt Lazarus Eli who confirmed the incident said the militants carted some arms away from the armoury of the police station.

“In the early hours of today, gunmen attacked the Divisional Police Station at Buni Yadi, Gujba Local Government of Yobe State. Three (3) policemen were killed, some arms carted away,”  Eli said.

Buni Yadi residents said Friday’s attack was the bloodiest they have ever seen.

    So bad, that when security agents are killed, not much publicity is made by the mass media. But the reverse, is always the case! Why? Are they not human?
