Gunmen Bomb Imo Police Station

Gunmen have razed Afor Atta Divisional Police headquarters in the Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State.

The incident, which happened on Monday night, comes a few hours after a convoy of a former governor of the state, Ikedi Ohakim, was attacked.

Four of his police orderlies killed were killed.

On the latest development, a community source told the Punch that the attackers got to the police station and threw explosives on the facility and it burnt.

Our correspondent gathered that no policeman was on duty when the attackers struck.

The source said, “The police station in my community has been burnt. It was burnt last night. Nobody could come out because of fear. As we speak, the area is desserted.”

The same police station was in June 2021 vandalised after two courts beside it were burnt.

The spokesperson for the police in the state, Micheal Abattam, had yet to comment on the incident as at the time of filing this report.
