Gunmen kills two policemen in Imo state police station

Gunmen stormed the Isu Divisional Police Headquarters in Imo State, killing two officers and injuring another. 

According to source, police officers on duty engaged the hoodlums in the incident, which occurred on Monday. 

According to sources, the hoodlums attacked the station with a variety of weapons, including improvised explosive devices, as soon as they arrived. 

Suspects have been apprehended, according to Mike Abattam, the command’s police spokesperson, who confirmed the attack and deaths of the two policemen in a statement.  

“Armed men suspected to be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra/ Eastern Security Network in their numbers came in two Toyota Sienna Buses, a Toyota Camry car, and an unspecified number of motorcycles, attacked the station from the rear axis because the station has no perimeter wall, shooting sporadically, threw petrol bombs and Improvised Explosive Devices that ignited the station,” the statement read in part. 

“The division’s police officers reacted quickly by confronting the hoodlums in a gunfight. The Gunmen were struck a hard blow by the Police’s overwhelming weaponry, and they scurried for cover, going in separate directions with varying degrees of bullet wounds”.  

“The gallant police operatives did not relent, they gave the hoodlums a hot chase, and while fleeing, some ran into Golden Suite Hotel and Isu Villa Hotel, respectively. The two hotels were immediately cordoned off and raided, and a total of twelve (12) motorcycles without identification numbers and two (2) vehicles, one (1) Lexus RX350 SUV and one (1) Lexus RX330 SUV, believed to have been used by the hoodlums, were seen and recovered. A total of seventeen (17) male and female suspects have been apprehended and are being interrogated”.
