The Taraba governor said no casualty was recorded in the attack in Karim Lamido.
“They used explosives to gain entrance to the Bank and also shot one of the security guards, he did not die and has been rushed to the
hospital,” Mr. Sule said.
The spokesman did not comment on whether the attackers escaped with money stolen from the bank. He also confirmed that the assailants attacked the police station in the town injuring one officer.
Mr. Sule however said the police men regrouped and pursued the attackers and that no police officer was killed as believed.
Mr. Sule said the attackers, after running away from the police, came back some minutes later on a rescue mission.
“They came back, opened fire and rescued their colleagues from the police,” he said.
