Explosion in Sokoto

                          The police station in Sokoto, bombed on 30 July, 2012.

Gunmen riding on motorbikes  attacked and opened fired on the Arkilla police station near a Mobile police barrack in Sokoto at 6:30 PM Nigerian time.

My source gathered  that an officer was killed in the drive-by attack. The gunmen fled on their motorbike before reinforcement could be called in from the MOPOL barrack nearby.

The attack this evening will be the third attack police formations in Sokoto by Islamist militants.
