The Nigeria Police has strongly condemned the attack on a police station in Aba by yet to be identified hoodlums.
ND REPORTERS gathered that the hoodlums stormed the station at about 2:30 am, Tuesday morning.
The Police in a statement on its Twitter page said the Abia State Command successfully neutralised 4 attackers, arrested 8 persons and recovered arms and ammunition from hoodlums who carried out the attack.
“It is worth noting that the hoodlums numbering about two hundred persons, armed with AK47 rifles and machetes invaded the station and set part of it ablaze with the aid of petrol bombs and other explosives.
“Following the attack, two officers, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP Vincent Gonze and Sergeant Emmanuel Okoronkwo, unfortunately, paid the supreme price.”
It further stated that the Inspector General of Police, IGP M.A. Adamu commiserated with the family and friends of the deceased officers.
He warned that dire consequences await any person or group of persons who, under whatever guise, engages in an unwarranted attack on any public property.
