The Kaduna police spokesperson, Mohammed Jalige, said the attack occurred at about 1:30 a.m. while residents were asleep.

Mr Jalige said before the attack on the hospital facility, some gunmen “attacked the Divisional Police Headquarters, Saye Zaria LGA of Kaduna State in an attempt to overrun the officers on duty but met with a stiff resistance from the officers who were at alert as of the time of the attack.”

“There was a heavy exchange of fire between the bandits and the police personnel on duty but the superior tactical and operational sagacity of the police forced the bandits to retreat and took to their heels some of which have escaped with bullet injuries.”
