Some gunmen on Tuesday invaded the police station at Gegu village on Lokoja–Abuja road, killing two of the policemen on duty.
William Aya, spokesman of the Kogi state police command, confirmed this to newsmen.
“It is true that there was an attack today. We lost two officers,” he said.
He said the gunmen also injured one of the suspects in the cell.
Aya said the corpses of the slain policemen had been deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, where the injured suspect is also receiving treatment, adding that investigation had commenced into the incident.
Meanwhile, some of the villagers told NAN that the gunmen, about five in number, came on motorcycles.
The suspects, according to the villagers, immediately opened fire on arrival at the police station.
The incident, the villagers said, led to disruption in traffic movement on the ever busy Lokoja – Abuja road.
