4 “While we condemn in strong term the dastardly act of the attackers, we are resolute to track them (hoodlums) down and rescue the expatriates unhurt.

5 “The police also wish to refute the insinuation that the hoodlums took away some AK-47 guns belonging to our officers during the attack,” he said.

6 Egbuka appealed to the public to report any suspicious character or movement to the security agencies for necessary action.

7 He said that  the bodies of the five victims had been deposited at the morgue of ASCOL Medical Centre in Ajaokuta Steel Complex.
