“However, because the station lacked a perimeter wall, they attacked it from behind, shooting sporadically.”

They also set fire to the station using petrol bombs and other explosive devices.

“The division’s police officers reacted quickly by confronting the suspected IPOB/ESN members in a gunfight.

“The hoodlums were hit hard as a result of the police’s superior weaponry, and they scurried for safety, running in separate directions with varying degrees of bullet wounds.

“The brave police officers did not give up; they gave the suspected IPOB/ESN members a furious chase, and some of them ran into the Golden Suite Hotel and the Isu Villa Hotel while fleeing.”

The two hotels were promptly sealed off and raided, leading to the recovery of a total of 12 motorcycles with no identification numbers and two vehicles, one Lexus RX 350 SUV and one Lexus RX 330 SUV, suspected of being utilized by the hoodlums.

In addition, 17 male and one female suspects were apprehended and are being questioned.
