The Police Command in Imo State says its operatives have repelled an unknown gunmen attack on Ideato South Local Government Area Police station.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Michael Abattam gave the information in a statement issued on Thursday, in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

He said the attack, which occurred at about 0230 hours, at Ideato South Police Station, involved some unknown gunmen who came in their numbers, shooting sporadically, throwing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) into the station.

According to the release, “the hoodlums were immediately repelled by the Command’s tactical teams and the police operatives of the division. And in the ensuing gun duel, the hoodlums were overwhelmed by the superior fire-power of the police, resulting in several of them fleeing into the bush with various degrees of bullet injuries.

“No life or arms was lost and the detonated Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) only caused minimal damage.”

The Commissioner of Police CP Rabiu Hussaini, while commending the officers and men for their gallantry, called on members of the public, especially those residing in the community, to assist the police by availing them with credible information and to report any person seen treating bullet wounds or hiding within the community, to the nearest police station.
