Situated in the heart of Jimeta community in Yola North local government area, the Police headquarters experienced at least 30 minutes of incessant gunfire as reported by a witness.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Yahaya Nguroje, acknowledged the attack on Wednesday but assured that the situation was under control.
Nguroje stated that the attack had been repelled, but the identities of the assailants remained unknown.
