Tension as hoodlums raze police station, courts in Imo

The spate of attacks on Police establishments across the South East is far from over.

On Saturday, May 29, unidentified gunmen razed the Atta Divisional Police Headquarters in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo.

It was gathered that the attackers shot sporadically for more than one hour before setting the station ablaze.

They also razed the Magistrate’s and High Courts in the area and later vandalised the community health centre.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Bala Elkana, confirmed the incident in a statement issued in Owerri.

According to the statement, some hoodlums in their numbers stormed the court premises in Attah and set the court buildings on fire.

Elkana further stated that they damaged a building, which was constructed by the community for the police division.
He added that the Commissioner of Police, Mr Abutu Yaro, had ordered a full investigation into the incident.

Businesses and major markets could not open on Saturday in Owerri and its environs, ahead of Monday’s sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.
