Gunshots as bandits invade NSCDC headquarters in Nasarawa



An unspecified number of bandits have attacked the headquarters of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Command in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital.

DAILY POST gathered that the assailants invaded the Command’s headquarters in the early hours of Monday amid sporadic gunshots.

Operatives of the Command, however, repelled the attack by opening fire on the hoodlums, leading to a gun duel.

It was gathered that the terrorists were on a mission to free some high-profile suspected criminals in the custody of the Command.

According to the NSCDC Public Relations Officer, Jerry Victor, the bandits invaded the Command’s headquarters with sophisticated weapons.

He said the gunmen attempted to break some part of the fence to gain entry into the offices while some of them took different positions around the building.

“The operatives of the NSCDC swiftly responded by opening fire on the hoodlums whose mission was to release some high-profile suspected criminals, including informants of kidnappers in the custody of the Command.”

He also confirmed that no casualty was recorded during the gun battle between the gunmen and the NSCDC operatives.
