A group of gunmen yesterday attacked a police station in Adamawa and kidnapped a woman and her daughter.
Police said the hoodlums split into two groups with one invading Nguroje Police Station in Yola South Local Government Area while the other attacked a targeted family in the community from which they abducted the two females.
Both assaults took place about 2am yesterday, police spokesman Suleiman Nguroje said in a statement, adding that no one was killed.
The criminals separated into two groups; one attacked the police station to divert the attention of security operatives, while other group attacked Alhaji Umaru’s house and kidnapped his wife, Hauwa Umaru, and her daughter.
The Commissioner of Police Mr Mohammed Barde, has ordered the deployment of operational assets including Police Mobile Force (PMF), Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), Crack Squad and Anti-Kidnapping units to Ngurore, he said.
The Operational units are expected to carry out confidence-boosting patrols within the hotspots in coordinated operations with the gallant men on the ground to rescue the kidnapped victims and apprehend the culprits, he said.
