03 January 2013, 12:04

Adamawa -   Unknown gunmen on Thursday attacked and razed the Song divisional police station and local government secretariat in Adamawa.

A resident of the town told NAN on condition of anonymity that the attack occurred in the early hours of Thursday.

 ``The police station and part of the one-story secretariat building were burnt by the gunmen, who also attacked a security check-point on the Song-Yola road,’’ he said.

The source said that an old woman and a boy were hit by stray bullets in their home near the police station. ``Dada Audu, an 80-year-old woman with her grandson of about 15 years were hit by bullets and are feared dead,’’ he said.

Contacted, the Adamawa police command Public Relations Officer, Mr Mohammed Ibrahim, confirmed the attack but gave no details. Ibrahim said he was heading to the location.
