What is said to have triggered the latest attack was as a result of one of the soldiers being taken to court and remanded for allegedly beating his wife.

The soldier tried escaping while he was being escorted into custody until the next adjourned date.

In the process, the soldier reportedly fled towards his colleagues who were undertaking an operation in town but was given a hot chase by the police officers who managed to recapture him.

However, his colleagues fended them off and launched a brutal assault on the police officers.

The situation has forced all the police personnel in the region to withdraw from their posts until they are given weapons by their command to retaliate.
