Three police officers killed in Damaturu attack

The Commissioner of Police in Yobe, Patrick Egbuniwe, has confirmed that three policemen were killed while four others were wounded in Monday’s explosions and gun attacks in Damaturu.

He said in a telephone interview on Tuesday that the civilian casualty had yet to be ascertained.

“We are still working on that,” he said.

The commissioner, however, described the situation in the state capital as “calm”.

“You know government has imposed a 24-hour curfew and we are doing everything possible to restore normalcy and order in Damaturu and the entire state,” he said.
