The armed men set ablaze buildings and vehicles, Humangle reported.

It reported that there were heavy gunshots at the police headquarters before the offices and vehicles were set ablaze.

Although no clear the number of casualties on the side of the police and the attackers is available officially, eyewitnesses told HumAngle that two unidentified persons were feared dead during the early morning attack, which comes barely a week after governors in the region set up a security outfit named Ebube Agu to address growing insecurity in the Southeast.

The Zonal Police Headquarters, Zone 13 is in charge of Anambra and Enugu states’ commands.

The motive for the attack was unknown as of the time of filing the report.

It appears to be a continuation of the spate of attacks on security agents and formations in the Southeast which had resulted in the death of personnel and the destruction of property.
