Imo state has been experiencing series of attacks lately, especially on security formations.
On April 5, armed men invaded the headquarters of the Imo State Police Command and the Nigerian Correctional Service in Owerri, burnt the facilities and freed over 1,800 inmates.
Unfortunately, one person suspected to be a fleeing prison inmate was hit by a stray bullet.
A few days later, the country home of the state governor, Hope Uzodinma in Omuma, Oru East Local Government Area of the state was invaded by gunmen.
During the attack, they burnt part of the building and razed some vehicles in the compound, killing at least a security official.
Efforts to speak with the Imo State Police Public Relations officer for comments proved abortive as calls to his phone number were not answered nor returned.
