Gunmen have attacked the Isi-Uzo Divisional Police Station in Ikem, Enugu State, and allegedly carted away the police arms and ammunition.
According to The Nation, the assailants stormed the unfenced police station at about 2 a.m. on Tuesday with a Toyota Sienna vehicle, shouting “Release Nnamdi Kanu,” “No Nnamdi Kanu, no peace”.
“They came through Eha-Amufu and left through the same axis, but it’s not possible they got to Eha-Amufu township or crossed to Nkalagu; otherwise, they would have been encountered by the soldiers in that area. It’s possible they went through Aguamede to Benue State,” the source said.
It was further reported that a policeman on night duty at the police station was shot but was not killed.
In the past, the divisional police station wasunder severettack by armed robbers whoerrorized banks at Ikem and Eha-Amufu, resulting in the closure of banks in the area for over ten years now.
The porous divisional police station is the only one in the whole of Isi-Uzo LGA, with the closest at Obollo-Afor, at a distance of 30 kilometres.
The Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, has yet to confirm the development.
