He said: “They killed three policemen – one constable and two inspectors and the police killed one of the gunmen.

“Nobody knows the identity of the gunman and police have taken the remains away.

“The incident happened around 2am, nobody knows the route they came from, all we hard were gunshots for about 10 minutes.

“At the moment there is no information to know if they destroyed or stole anything from the police station.

“The men were masked but the one killed had his face unveiled by the police to ascertain his identity. He also had red cloth tied around his waist believing it was a charm.”
