The Adamawa Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Mohammed Ibrahim, confirmed the incident on Wednesday in Yola.
Ibrahim said the gunmen, who stormed the chairman’s residence at around 8 p.m, were repelled by the policemen on duty.
“The policemen on duty shot and injured one of the gunmen, and he was later arrested while the others escaped,’’ he said.
The latest attack was the second time gunmen would attack the chairman’s residence.
In the previous attack, which took place about seven months ago, four visitors were killed by gunmen who also robbed guests of the chairman.(NAN)
