There is no respite yet for the people of the South-East region of the country from sustained attacks of non-state actors despite the establishment of a local security outfit codenamed Ebube Agu days ago.
This is because a Divisional Police Station in Adani, in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State was attacked in the wee hours of today.
The attack which reportedly started around 2:30am lasted uninterrupted for 1hour.
The attack came barely 24 hours after a Police Zonal Headquarters, Zone 13 in Ukpo, Anambra State was attacked.
It was gathered that three policemen on duty were killed, while several others were injured during the attack.
It was learnt that security infrastructure in the station were razed.
Though state police command has since confirmed the attack, no public were not furnished with details of the incident as of the time of filing this report.
Reacting to the development the State Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, said, “Yes, there is a report of an attack on Adani Divisional Police station this early morning. However, the details of the incident are still sketchy.”
ENUGU, the former seat of power of the defunct Eastern region, was announced to be the headquarters of the Ebube Agu security outfit.
