- While many police stations have come under attack in the region in recent time, the latest incident makes it the second attack on police facilities in Abia since the beginning of the week
Two policemen have been injured in another attack on a Police Divisional Headquarters in Abia State, south-east Nigeria.
The attack reportedly occurred at about 10pm on Wednesday in Bende Local Government Area of the state.
A group of hoodlums, in a large number, were said to have attacked the police station in the night and set it on fire.
While the two policemen injured during the attack have been taken to a hospital for medical attention, the police command vowed not to rest on its oars to fish out the perpetrators.
The Commissioner of Information in Abia, John Okiyi, who confirmed the attack on the police station on Thursday said that Abia has remained one of the safest states, and called on those behind attacks on government facilities in the state to have a rethink.
