Hoodlums burn police station in Anambra

The Neni Police Divisional Headquarters, in Anaocha Local Government Area (LGA) of Anambra, has been attacked by yet-to-be-identified arsonists.

Residents of the area who pleaded anonymity, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka that the attackers stormed the facility at about 2am on Thursday.

Recall that gunmen attacked the Awgbu Police Division in Orumba North LGA on March 25 in a similar manner, killing some police personnel.

The residents said there was a sustained gun duel before the building went up in flames after a loud explosion.

They said they could not confirm if life was lost in the incident.

Confirming the incident, Commissioner of Police (CP) Aderemi Adeoye, said there was no loss of life in the incident.

Adeoye said the Awgbu and Neni attacks were related and that an intensive investigation was ongoing.

He said the command was gathering intelligence on the assailants, assuring that they would not escape justice.

“We are gathering intelligence to know those responsible. I do not want to disclose what we are doing. In the fullness of time, we will do that.

“They will not go scot-free,” he assured. (NAN)
