Gunmen demolished the Zone 13 police headquarters in Ukpo, Anambra state, during a violent attack.
The incident happened in the early hours of Monday.
Although the details of the attack at the time of the report were still unclear, it was determined that the armed attackers opened fire on the police officers on duty.
At least three cars burned as a result of petrol bombs dropped on the complex.
Reports say gunmen sneaked through the bushes around the area, tried to break through the wall, but officers hired them and fled leaving weapons, including GMGs they had collected from the Navy.
The incident happened two weeks after unknown gunmen destroyed the headquarters of the Imo police command.
The attack comes amid growing security incidents in the state of Anambra.
Governor Willie Obiano recently raised the alarm over the deteriorating security situation, saying the country is under siege by criminals.
“I call on everyone, regardless of affiliation, to come together and support the government and security agencies in the fight against our common enemy.” Those who want to destroy what we have tried to build must not be tolerated in any way, ”Obiano said.
Apart from Anambra, other countries in the southeast are witnessing an increase in the number of criminal attacks and targeted attacks on security agencies.
