Hoodlums have reportedly attacked not fewer than two policemen attached to the Zone 13 Police headquarters in Ukpo, Anambra state before burning down some parts of the facility on Monday.
It was gathered that not less than four vehicles have also been burnt while fire fighters have arrived to quench the situation.
The development has heightened tension across the length and breadth of Anambra.
A police officer, who pleaded anonymity, said the hoodlums were rebuffed from getting into the armoury department of the place.
“Our men prevented them from having ingress into our armoury. I can’t tell you the number of casualties now because we have scanty information about the development”, he said.
An eyewitness said, there was heavy gunshots before the offices and vehicles were set ablaze.
On Sunday night, three persons were allegedly killed in Awka, Anambra State, including a fitness instructor.
The sad incident occurred at Ifite, Awka South local government area, while the other person was killed at Unizik junction.
