Gunmen on Thursday attacked a police station in the Bende Local Government Area of Abia State and set it ablaze.
It was gathered that the assailants stormed the police station in the early hours of Thursday and burnt all the vehicles parked in the station before razing the building.
“We heard series of gunshots, and when we rushed outside, we saw the station on fire,” a resident disclosed.
The latest attack is coming less than six hours after Governor Okezie Ikpeazu left Bende Local Government Area Headquarters where a reception was held for the former House of Representatives member who represented Bende Federal Constituency, Hon. Nnenna Ukeje.
