The Aguata Local Government Area headquarters, Anambra State, is currently being attacked by unknown gunmen.

The newly sworn-in Governor of the State, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, hails from Aguata.

The attack began Thursday afternoon when the council headquarters was set on fire by the attackers, who are believed to be the same people that attacked the market in the council, Eke Ekwulobia.

When contacted, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu said that “following the report of the fire incident at the Local Government headquarters, the command has deployed men to the area and the situation has been brought under control.”

Ikenga, who is the spokesman of Anambra State Police Command, also said that men of the Fire Service have been contacted and they are already combating the inferno.
