Gunmen have attacked the Abia State Police Command headquarters in Umuahia, the state capital. They killed a policeman.

Sources said that the victim, an Inspector, was on guard duty in front of the headquarters located along Bende Road when the gunmen struck at about 1 a.m.

He was said to have mobilised his colleagues to engage the hoodlums, who later fled.

It was further gathered that the hoodlums could have wrecked more damage but for the action of the policemen on guard.

Police Public Relations Officer, Abia State Command, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, didn’t respond to calls and text messages sent to his mobile number.

However, a senior Police officer in the state confirmed the attack.
