What could have been a tragedy was averted when the Kebbi Police Command foiled an attempt by unknown gunmen to attack the State College of Basic and Advanced Studies in Yauri, headquarters of Yauri Local Government Area of the state.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr Benjamin Onwuka, who made this known on Monday, during a chat with journalists in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, said that the incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday.
Onwuka, however, dismissed insinuations that the attackers were terrorists.
He added that normalcy had been restored in the institution as both the students and residents of the area had resumed their normal daily activities.
The police boss also urged residents of the area to remain law abiding and to avoid rumour mongering.
He furthermore appealed to members of the public to continue to assist the police with relevant information that would assist security agencies to prevent crime and other vices in the state.
