Gunmen Raze Down Police Facility In Abia

A facility occupied by the Abia State Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Umuagu, Umuahia, has been razed down by unknown gunmen.

Some suspects detained in the facility were also released.

A policeman who craved anonymity confirmed the development.

The extent of damages could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report, but reports have it that a Keke Napep driver was killed in the mayhem.

This is the latest in a series of attacks targeted at government facilities in Abia state and in the South-East region generally.

The region is home to a secession movement championed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which has been proscribed by a Nigerian court.

IPOB, which is seeking to create a Biafra nation, has ordered a sit-at-home directive on Sunday in respect of south-easterners which died in Nigeria’s deadly civil war.
