Gunmen
attack another police facility in Imo.

 

Gunmen suspected to be members of the proscribed
Indigenous
People of Biafra
/Eastern Security Network
attacked the Obowo Divisional Police headquarters in Imo on Monday.

The police spokesperson in Imo, Michael Abattam, stated
in Owerri that the assailants approached the station from an ungoverned forest at the rear.

He added that they threw petrol bombs and Improvised
Explosive Devices that fell on the transit camp behind the station and on a parked vehicle.

“Police operatives and some of the Command’s Technical
Teams engaged the hoodlums in a fierce gun duel preventing them from gaining entrance to the station.

“In the process, they forced the hoodlums to retreat
into the forest with various degrees of bullet wounds.

“The police operatives gave them a hot chase and while
combing the bush, three undetonated explosives, four expended AK47 bullets and five live cartridges were recovered.

“Also recovered were 33 expended cartridges, two masks,
one pump action gun and a motorized sewing machine,” Mr Abattam stated.

He added that apart from the minimal damage to the transit
camp and the vehicle, no life was lost.

He stated also that a police operative who sustained
a minor gunshot injury had been treated.

The police spokesman added that Acting Commissioner of
Police, Maman Giwa, who visited the scene, commended the officers and men for repelling the attack.

Mr Giwa appealed to Imo residents to continue to give
the police timely and credible information about criminals and their activities and to report any person seen treating bullet wounds within the community to the nearest police station.

Meanwhile, a source in the community, who requested anonymity,
said two persons were feared killed in the attack.

“The attack started around 2 a.m. and lasted for about
three hours. We heard the sounds of various firearms and suspected dynamite during the attack.

“We do not know whether the assailants took away police
weapons as they usually did,” he said.

Monday’s attack brought the number of police divisional
headquarters attacked in Imo in March to four.

Earlier in the month, gunmen attacked Orsu, Oru East
and Umuguma police divisional headquarters. (

NIGER STATE

 

Pandemonium
in Niger State communities as residents flee after 24-hour attack by terrorists.

 

Many residents fled from communities in the Munya Local
Government Area of Niger State after an attack by terrorists at the weekend.

At least six communities were reportedly affected by
the attack that started on Saturday evening and continued up till Sunday evening, Daily Trust reports.

The attack came a week after Governor Sani Bello assured
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) that they were safe to return to their communities.

A resident, Shehu Abubakar, said the bandits stormed
Sarkin Pawa-Minna Road where many adjoining communities were attacked.

“As I speak with you now, (around 8 pm on Sunday) they
are still on Sarkin Pawa-Minna Road, operating. People had started returning home and the bandits decided to strike again.

“Some of our people in Minna who wanted to return today
were trapped; we communicated with them and told them not to come back again,” he said.

Another resident, Mr. Makama Shekwo’aga, said, “The IDPs
were told to go back to their villages recently, that security had been provided.

“Yesterday evening, bandits in large numbers invaded
the Kuchi/Chibani axis in Munya Local Government Area of Niger State, displacing people and looting shops. Fuka, Dandaudu, Mararaba, Kuchi, Chibani, Injita axes are practically all empty as people have continued to flee to Gwada in Shiroro Local Government
Area.”

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner for Local Government,
Chieftaincy Affairs and Internal Security, Emmanuel Umar, said he was “already preparing a statement on the incident”.
