The suspects also attacked Oraifite Area Command/ Division, vandalized and set the facilities ablaze carting away exhibits but NOT Arms and ammunition.

Meanwhile, the DPO Osumenyi Division and two others were fatally wounded during the attack. The injured Police officers were rushed to the hospital for medical attention after which the DPO and the Station officer Osumenyi were confirmed dead by the Medical Doctor while the other Police Constable is responding to treatment.
