Gunmen attack police station in Abia

Gunmen kill four police officers in Calabar

Gunmen on Wednesday evening attacked the Criminal Investigation Department office of the Abia State police command located in Umuagu in Umuahia, inflicting several degrees of injury on three police officers.

One of the officers was severely cut with a machete by the hoodlums while two others were shot at but survived.

The injured officers have since been rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

Geoffrey Ogbonna, spokesman of the Abia State Police Command did not immediately respond to enquiries for comments on the attack.

A source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the armoury was also invaded, though it is not clear if arms were carted away.

The facility was attacked and burnt down by unknown gunmen in April 2021, leading to the death of five officers.
