The Police in Gombe State have confirmed the killing of two people when gunmen attacked Kumo Police Division in Akko Local Government Area on Friday night.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Mohammed Sule, told journalists in Gombe that the dead were among the attackers.

Sule said the police recovered one AK 47 rifle and two motorcycles from the attackers.
“As far as I am concerned, none of my men was killed.

“What I know is that two of the attackers were killed and we recovered one AK 47 rifle and two motorcycles,” he said.

Sule, however, said he was expecting details of the incident since it occurred in the night.
He decried the lack of information from the public to enable the police to prevent such attacks.
Some residents of Kumo town told reporters that they heard sounds of gunshots when the attackers came in the night.
