The Anambra State Police Command said it stopped a planned attack on the Police Divisional Headquarters in Nneni, in the Anaocha Local Government Area of the state.

In the early hours of Thursday, some unidentified assailants stormed the police station, throwing explosive devices that burnt part of the building.

One of the residents in the area and a source said the hoodlums were attempting to free some inmates at the facility, but they were unsuccessful as police officers on duty repelled the attack.

Tochukwu Ikenga, the police spokesperson in the state, confirmed the attack but added that no life was lost and the assailants were repelled.

Ikenga said, “In Nneni, no life was lost, no policeman was whisked away, and no arm was taken away. Instead, the hoodlums threw IEDs into the police facility, which torched part of the building.

“Our operatives gallantly resisted the attackers, which made them flee. Operations are still ongoing, and further development shall be communicated, please.”
