He explained that the station’s armoury was also broken into, while a policewoman was injured during the attack.


“In the course of that attack, one inspector lost his life, and another policewoman was seriously injured,” he said.

“The hoodlums then broke into the armoury of the police at the station and stole some arms, including the gun of the inspector who was killed.

“They also burnt down the station and the vehicles parked in the premises, including one of our serviceable patrol vans.


“The body of the inspector has been taken to the mortuary, while the policewoman is being treated.”
