According to Yaro, "The hoodlums in their numbers launched an offensive attack against the Izombe police station but were repelled by policemen on duty. Four out of all of them were killed and the others ran away with bullet wounds"

Yaro further added they were working on a mop-up operation to catch the remaining members of the gang.
