A statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, says the hoodlums numbering over twenty with three Sienna buses and motorcycles engaged the police in a gun-duel which lasted for over 30mins before reinforcements from the State headquarters forcing the hoodlums to escape.
