Gunmen burn down another police station, high court in Imo
Gunmen on Saturday burnt down Atta Divisional Police Headquarters, Atta Magistrate and High Court in the Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State.
It was gathered that the hoodlums equally vandalized the community’s health centre.
The razing of the building was said to have taken place between 1 and 2am.
According to source, the invaders shot repeatedly for close to an hour before setting the government facilities in the community ablaze.
The crown prince of the community, Remigiius Azike, told PUNCH that the incident took place when the villagers had gone to bed.
A former president-general of the community, John Agbaso, said it was just one week ago that the house of the president-general of the community, Chijioke Duruonyeokwu, was set ablaze by unknown gunmen with his wife killed.
The community leader said that insecurity was on the increase in the area while calling on the government to come to their rescue
“I was the one who built the police station and the magistrate court and mobilised youths under the auspices of Transformations Ambassadors of Atta Nwambieri to build the high court. I did this so that our people will have access to government facilities.
“This latest incident is coming a week after they razed the house of our president general and killed his wife. The government should come to our rescue,” he said.
