According to Vanguard, the victim said to be an Inspector of Police was on guard duty on the road in front of the headquarters when the gunmen struck at about 1 a.m on Monday.

Before the police inspector was killed, he was said to mobilised his colleagues to engage the hoodlums, who could have wrecked more damage in the police station.

When contacted, the spokesperson of Abia State Police Command, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna said he was yet to be briefed on the development.
