Some armed hoodlums have attacked Abaomege Police Division in Onicha Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

The Ebonyi Commissioner for Internal Security, Mr Stanley Okoro-Emegha, confirmed the attack to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abakaliki on Sunday.

Okoro-Emegha described the attack as ‘worrisome and unfortunate.’

“The Abaomege division was attacked yesterday, Saturday; it is very unfortunate and worrisome.

“They carted away valuables and destroyed property.

“I urge the police to step up strategy to deal with these hoodlums,” he stated.

 

Sunday Okafor, an eyewitness and resident in the area, speaking with NAN, said the incident occurred on Saturday night.

Narrating the attack, he said, “Yes, it happened on Saturday night; the gunmen came and started shooting sporadically; one police officer was shot but we do not know if he is dead.”

“The gunmen also destroyed police vehicles and a motorcycle at the division and stole some property,” Okafor claimed.
