Gunmen on Tuesday have set ablaze the Divisional Police Headquarters, in Ehime Mbano Local Government Area in Imo State.
This is coming on the heels of an attack on Owerri Correctional Centre and the Imo State Police Command headquarters, freeing 1,884 inmates and razing over 50 vehicles.
It was said that this new attack came shortly after the top government functionaries visited the state.
Police spokesman in Imo State, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed the attack on the police division to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
The attack occurred a few hours after the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo; the former Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and other government functionaries visited the state to inspect the attacked facilities.
However, the PPRO said no life was lost in the latest attack.
“Yes I can confirm to you that the police facility was attacked today by bandits. No casualty on the part of police, no loss of arms but three vehicles were burnt in the process,” he said.
Recall CRIMECHANNELS had reported how hoodlums attacked Correctional centre and the Police Command Headquarters in Owerri setting free several hundreds of inmates in the process.
