Bende local government area of Abia State has been thrown into pandemonium as gunmen invaded Ubani Market Police Station in the community and set it on fire.
The attack, according to Daily Trust, was perpetrated by militants suspected to be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday, May 9.
No life was lost in the incident as policemen had relocated from the place days before the incident.
It was gathered that the officers working at the station were moved to a station at nearby TradeMoore housing Estate.
This is the latest attack on a police facility since the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the armed wing of the outlawed IPOB, launched its campaign of violence earlier in the year.
The lives of many security operatives have been cut short in the line of duty.
Reporters At Large recently reported that gunmen killed two police inspectors when they attacked the Obosi Police Station in the Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The attack was launched around 11.30 pm, barely 24 hours after the newly appointed Commissioner of Police for the state, Christopher Adetokumbo Owolabi, resumed duty.
