Explosions and gunfire were reported to have rocked the headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital on Friday night.

A Channels TV report said that the attack on the DSS office begun around 10:30 p.m.

“Our correspondent says four people were killed in the incident including the insurgents that carried out the attack,” the report said, adding:

“Soldiers from the Maigomeri Barracks were drafted to support the DSS security operatives in an effort to repel the attack.

“Earlier in the week, the Kogi Police Command paraded over 70 hoodlums, more than half of whom were said to have been arrested at a place known as the Boko Haram village in the Obajana area of Kogi State.”
