The gunmen were said to have shot sporadically into the air before gaining access to the police facility and proceeded to free all the suspects in detention.

It was learnt that the gunmen set the police divisional headquarters on fire after freeing the suspects.

Witnesses said that the gunmen operated for nearly an hour unchallenged.
