Bandits have attacked the home of a police officer attached to the Inspector General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT), ASP Aliyu Umar, at Kofar Kona area of Zaria Local Government Area in Kaduna State.

The bandits attacked the policeman’s house late evening of Monday shooting sporadically to disperse residents.

The affected police officer confirming the attack said; “My house was full of people numbering more than 20, including my friend who arrived from Egypt, my aged mother and my siblings.

“When I heard shootings, I opened my entrance door thinking it was police officers on patrol, but I saw three people holding guns and I quickly went back in and shut the door then locked it.”
