Unidentified gunmen have attacked a police station in Bende local government of Abia State in the early hours of Thursday and razed the station.
NewsWireNGR gathered that the attackers burnt all the vehicles parked in the station before razing the building.
The police station is situated at the outer gate of the LGA headquarters and less than 10 metres from the LGA field.
“We heard series of gunshots, and when we rushed outside, we saw the station on fire,” a resident said.
The incident happened less than six hours after Governor Okezie Ikpeazu left Bende LGA headquarters where a civic reception was held for the immediate past House of Representatives member who represented Bende Federal Constituency, Hon. Nnenna Ukeje.
The attack on Bende Police Station comes less than a week after gunmen razed the Ubani Market Police station, still in Bende LGA.
