A source at the affected police station noted that the gunmen invaded the station on Wednesday night, killing two inspectors while all the detainees in the cell were released before razing down the police station.

The development was confirmed by the spokesman of the command, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, who noted that the commissioner of police has deployed a team to the scene of the incident to investigate the reason for the attack.
