6 KILLED AS GUNMEN ATTACK EXPATRIATES IN GOMBE



Gunmen killed three policemen and three ci­vilians during an attack on some foreign workers in the Guba Shango axis of Gombe State on Sat­urday. A security source confirmed the attack to an online newspaper, TheCa­ble. He said it happened at 9:00 p.m on Saturday.
The source said the at­tackers allegedly trailed the workers from a con­struction site to their quar­ters, adding that those killed tried to repel the at­tack.
“Someone must have given them information because they trailed the workers from a site where they were excavating coal to their quarters, opposite Ganja School, here in the state capital,” the source said.
He continues: “Three policemen and three local guards were killed during the gun battle. They were not kidnappers because even after overpowering the security personnel, they did not abduct the workers.
“One cannot really say if they were armed rob­bers or Boko Haram mem­bers.”
Fwaje Atajiri, police spokesman in the state, refused to comment on the incident.
