Gunmen In 4 Hilux Buses Attack Collation Centre In Bauchi

Gunmen on Sunday morning attacked a centre where election results were being collated in Bauchi State. Apart from attacking the Central Primary School in Alkaleri Local Government which was being used as a collation centre, the gunmen also attacked Alkaleri Divisional Police Station, and an INEC office, a resident told Premium Times.

He said the gunmen came in four Hilux vehicles, shooting sporadically as residents scampered for safety and those indoors remained there. The source said the gunmen told residents not to panic.

“They said they have no intention to harm any body. After the destruction they left for Bauchi (Town), because they took Bauchi road,” he said.

Sunday’s attack occurred less than 24 hours after a similar attack on another part of the state during elections.
