Another police formation attacked in Abia State

Hoodlums on Wednesday attacked another police station in Abia State.

The police spokesperson in the state, Geoffrey Ogbonna, who confirmed the attack in a statement on Thursday in Umuahia, said the attack occurred at Nkporo Police Station in Ohafia Local Government Area of the state, and blamed the attack on criminals whom he said took advantage of the morning rainfall to attack the station but were repelled by police operatives at the station.

Ogbonna stated that the hoodlums threw an explosive at the charge room which caused damage to the counter, chairs and benches and also burnt one unserviceable police motorcycle outside and broke the windshield of the patrol van.

The attackers stole two exhibit motorcycles although no police officer was killed or injured in the attack.

The police are currently on the trail of the suspects.
