Gunmen on Wednesday night attacked Obosi police station in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, killing two police Inspectors, setting the station ablaze, and freeing all detainees in the cell.
The attack happened barely 24 hours after the new Commissioner of Police, Mr Christopher Adetokumbo Owolabi, assumed office.
The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, who confirmed the incident, said the Police Commissioner has deployed security operatives to the scene of the incident to investigate the cause of the attack.
This comes less than one week after gunmen attacked the Abaomege Police Station in Onicha LGA of Ebonyi State.
