KANO – Several Police officers  on duty at Mandawari station located within the precinct of the Emir of Kano ‘s palace were feared injured during a rush hour attack by unknown gunmen, Monday morning.

Eyewitnesses said the gunmen had arrived on motocyles at about 7.42 am and launched an attack on the station causing pandemonium among residents.

Mandawari station had been the target of several attacks by unknown gunmen in the last couple of weeks.

    It’s unfortunate that the Nigerian police is not always proactive, otherwise why just cordoning the after the second attack. They’re coming for the Emir! Boko Haram is still ahead on points!!
