Gunmen wreaking havoc in the Southeastern part of the country have attacked the Agwa Divisional Police headquarters in Oguta Local Government Area of Imo state, killing at least four officers.
LEAKBLAST gathered that the incident occurred on Friday night when the assailants invaded the area shooting sporadically before gaining access into the station.
According to a police source who confirmed the incident to LEAKBLAST on Saturday, the incident has triggered tension in the entire local government.
He said the gunmen burnt some vehicles in the station and destroyed other valuable items.
“There was an attack in the station and we learnt that about four officers were killed. The total damage cannot be ascertained at the moment”, he said.
Efforts by LEAKBLAST to reach the state Police Command proved abortive as the Public Relations Officer, Micheal Abattam did not take his calls.
