Policemen and civilians have been killed by gunmen in Ajalli, Anambra State.
This comes barely 48 hours after the assassination of Dr Chike Akunyili and others.
Eyewitnesses say the attack was carried out by the so-called “unknown gunmen”.
According to them, the assailants stormed Ajalli Police Station in multiple vehicles Thursday afternoon and opened fire.
Ajalli is the headquarters of Orumba North Local Government Area.
A footage of the attack shared on social media showed the police building on fire, with some people trapped inside.
Residents were seen trying to break in and set them free.
The body of one of the officers was seen on the floor.
