Two police officers killed, others injured as gunmen attack Divisional Headquarters in Enugu


Unidentified gunmen in the early hours of Wednesday attacked Adani Police Divisional headquarters in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State.
Mr Hassan Yahaya, the Commander, Nsukka Area Command, confirmed the incident and said he was already in Adani to see things for himself.
“Yes, there was an attack on Adani police division early Wednesday morning.
“I am there now to see things for myself, assess level of destruction and know casualties,” he said.
A source in Nsukka on Wednesday that two police officers were killed and others injured while the police division was razed down.
“We started hearing sporadic gunshots around 2am on Wednesday morning which created fear and panic in the area.
“We don’t know who the gunmen were because the incident happened in the night.
“It is day break that we discovered that the attack is on Adani Police Division, two policemen were killed and some others injured as well as the station burnt,” he said.
Efforts to get further comment from Mr Daniel Ndukwe, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Enugu State, on the incident were unsuccessful as many phone calls to his mobile cellphone were neither picked nor returned.
Meanwhile, there has been series of attacks on security formations in the South-East especially police commands in Anambra, Ebonyi and Imo states.
However, the attack on Divisional Police headquarters, Adani is the first to be recorded in Enugu State after the #EndSARS crisis last October.
