Several unknown gunmen in the wee hours of Thursday attacked Obosi Police Station in Idemili North local government area of Anambra State, killing two policemen and setting the station ablaze.
The incident happened just as the newly deployed Commissioner of Police to Anambra Police Command; CP Chris Owolabi assumed duty on Tuesday.
Sources said the gunmen stormed the station in large numbers adding that the slain policemen were killed inside an abandoned filling station near the police station.
An eye-witness said, “When other police officers on duty noticed an unusual movement of the unknown gunmen, the officers took to their heels. After freeing the detainees, the gunmen burnt down the police station.”
