    Unknown gunmen on Thursday morning have again attacked Mbieri Divisional Police Headquarters in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo state.

    Yans reports that the gunmen attacked the police station around 1 am on Thursday and freed suspects detained in custody in the police facility.

    It was gathered that the gunmen failed to raze the police facility due to the resistance by the policemen on duty.

    Speaking to newsmen, a source said that the gunmen kidnapped one police officer and injured two other cops.

    He added that the hoodlums took away the phones belonging to suspects and the police operatives at the Divisional.

    The source said, “We resisted them but they overpowered us. They had more sophisticated weapons. They took all the phones they saw, released the suspects when they gained access, and vandalised the police building.”

    Confirming the attack, Police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, said it was true that the gunmen attacked the police station.

    He also confirmed that while one police officer was missing, two others were injured owing to the resistance put by the policemen on duty.

    Ikeokwu, also confirmed that some suspects detained in the police facility were freed by the attackers.
