DUP Leader Arlene Foster has expressed concern following the claim to a local newspaper that shots were fired at Enniskillen police station and that a device was also left in its vicinity. It is understood a recognised codeword was used.
Mrs Foster, the MLA for Fermanagh & South Tyrone said, "Even if this latest claim turns out to be a hoax it raises concern and causes disruption within Enniskillen. This serves as a reminder of the bravery of our security forces who place themselves in harm’s way to protect us as a community.
It is clear however that there remains those within our community who offer nothing other than violence and the threat of violence in order to advance their warped agenda.
This comes only a few days after reports of a device left in the Newtownbutler area. There must be a united response from across our community to say clearly that those responsible have nothing to offer. I would appeal to anyone with information about these incidents to assist police in bringing the perpetrators to justice."
