The Commissioner of Police in Bauchi State, Mr Ikechukwu Aduba, said that bandits on Friday used locally-made rockets and bombs to burn down Ganjuwa Divisional Police Headquarters.
Adubatold newsmen that early in the morning the bandits launched simultaneous attacks on the station at Kafin-Madaki in an attempt to steal more than N2 million meant for the payment of the salary of junior staff of the council.
He said the bandits laid siege on the station and attacked it, thereby forcing the security agents to retreat.

He said two Volkswagen Golf cars with registration number AT 348 TRN and KH 532 KD, five un-detonated locally-made bombs, women's clothes and apparels were recovered from the cars.
He said that other items recovered from the cars were two cartons of noodles, N676, 471, nine rounds of ammunition, a digger and a shovel.
