On Monday, an armed group attacked the police headquarters in Anambra’s Dunukofia Local Government Area.
According to Humangle, the armed men set fire to buildings and cars.
Strong gunshots were heard at the police headquarters before the offices and vehicles were set on fire, according to the paper.
While no official number of police and attacker casualties has been released, eyewitnesses told HumAngle that two unidentified people were feared dead during the early morning assault, which comes just a week after governors in the area established Ebube Agu, a security organization, to resolve growing insecurity in the Southeast.
Zone 13’s Zonal Police Headquarters is in charge of the commands in Anambra and Enugu states.
As of the time of filing the investigation, the motive for the attack was unclear.
It appears to be a continuation of a string of attacks in the Southeast on security agents and units that have culminated in the deaths of staff and the destruction of property.
