Shameless: Police Officers get seriously beating up by Armed Hoodlums' visit to their Station

Men of the Nigeria Police Force were caught unawares on Monday when a gang of heavily armed gun men in their early 30s invaded the police station and disarmed them of their weapons in broad day light.
One policemen confessed:
“I was more or less to go in and check some detainees when I heard gunshots. I rushed out to be face-to-face with bandits in flowing caftans, and some in tattered army uniforms, shooting into the air and ordering us to come out and sleep on the road.

“They then started throwing explosives into the police station. The ground was seriously shaking.
"They later moved to the bank (about 100 metres away) and started shooting and throwing explosives. Some of the robbers were standing over us, while the rest were at the bank.
Continue after the break.

The unfortunate incident took place at the Makarfi Divisional Police Station situated in the Makarfi Council of Kaduna State. Gunmen, numbering almost 30, raided the station and rubbished the policemen on duty.

Among the officer at the scene spoke with Vanguard. He said:
“I don't know the time each of them left because they left one following the other. They might have been there for an hour. Later, we saw a military vehicle with soldiers and Mobile Policemen. We told them what happened and they drove eastwards, also shooting into the air,” he said.

“So far as I know, no body was injured, though they take down a few of us. I also heard they could not get anything from the bank.

“I'd like one to please tell government to offer us surveillance and communication equipment. We are just here facing danger everyday. If the armed robbers had wanted, they could have killed many of us, because they'd better arms, and were more in number.”
What a BIG shame, in Nigeria of 2013?!
