The onslaught against unknown gunmen in Anambra State is obviously being resisted as the criminals have attacked another police station, albeit, unsuccessfully.
The gunmen arrived the Ayamelum divisional police station Anaku, in the early hours of Wednesday but were resisted by the gallant men of the force.
The fierce resistance and return of fire forced the invaders to scamper for safety. In the process, they threw some of the inflammable substances they came with into the operation vehicles and other cars in the premises making them go up in flames.
About three vehicles were completely destroyed as a result of the fire but the building wasn’t affected.
When contacted, the command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu told our Reporter that it was a “failed attack as our men foiled the invasion.”
“The attack was successfully repelled by our officers. We didn’t record any casualties and our arms are intact and our men are in high spirit.
“As I speak to you now, operations are still ongoing in the area to arrest the hoodlums,” Ikenga said.
Anambra Governor, Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo had earlier warned that the state will be hot for hoodlums. He also set up a committee that will look into the agitations in the state and proffer solution.
