At least two persons including a Police officer, have been reported killed on Sunday, October 9, 2022, following gunmen’s attack on Inyi Divisional Police Headquarters, in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State.
A resident in the area said the gunmen also set the station ablaze.
The source said the attackers came in two vehicles. He said a police officer and a civilian, who came to the station to lodge a complaint, were killed in the incident.
“The gunmen numbering six stormed the station and opened fire. The incident caused serious pandemonium but they (the gunmen) were telling the passers-by not to worry that they didn’t come for them.
“After several minutes of heavy shooting, they set the one-storey building ablaze. As I’m talking to you now, the station is on fire.
“When they left the scene, we counted two dead bodies on the floor. They must have been hit by bullets because we know one of them and he is not a police officer.
“They came with two vehicles, silver and black coloured”, a resident in the area said.
