Unknown gunmen have reportedly burnt down the Madagali Divisional Police Station in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa state.
An eye witness, who preferred anonymity, in Yola Thursday on phone said that the gunmen set the station ablaze around 7a.m..
The source added that the attack claimed the life of the only inmate in detention at the station.
Confirming the incident, the Adamawa Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Mohammed Ibrahim, said that the station was burnt down, but there was no police casualty.
“There is no police casualty and I am yet to confirm the death of anybody in detention,” Ibrahim said.
Madagali incident, which is bordering Borno state, was the second in the area within the year.
The attack followed a similar one visited on the Shuwa Police station located in the area early this year.
