Unknown gunmen have again attacked a police station in Obosi, Idemili North of Anambra State and two policemen on duty were reportedly killed.

The Gunmen on Wednesday night attacked Obosi police station in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, killing two police Inspectors and freeing all detainees in the cell.

The attack happened barely 24 hours after the new Commissioner of Police, Mr Christopher Adetokumbo Owolabi, assumed office.

A source at the affected police station told journalists that the gunmen attacked the station late on Wednesday night, killing two Inspectors while all the detainees in the cell were freed before razing down the police station.

When contacted, the Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, confirmed the incident, adding that the police commissioner has sent a team to the scene of the incident to unravel the circumstances behind the attack

The activities of the unknown gunmen caught national attention when they attacked a correctional facility in Owerri, the Imo state capital.

The attacks began as tensions between Nigerian security forces and supporters of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, separatist movement in the country’s south-east escalated.

Repeated clashes between Nigerian troops and IPOB elements have occurred in Imo, Rivers, Abia, and Anambra since January, with both sides denying responsibility for civilian casualties.
