The Abagana police station in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra state has been attacked by gunmen operating in the area.

The attackers also killed two members of the Vigilante Security Network.

Okeomanews gathered that the attackers were on the way  to attack the police station when they met the vigilante operatives on patrol and immediately opened fire on them, killing two of them instantly.

The spokesperson for the police in the state, Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the incident.

He however said the attackers did not gain entrance into the police station as they were repelled by the police personnel on duty.

He said, “On Friday, by 11:30 pm, police operatives attached to Abagana police station resisted gunmen’s attack on the station and forestall the attackers from gaining entrance to the police facility.

“The gunmen had earlier attacked, Anambra State Vigilante Operatives on patrol, murdered two of their operatives, and on approaching the Abagana Police Station, started shooting sporadically to gain entrance to the police station.

“The police operatives engaged the armed men in a gun duel, due to the superior fire of the police and in a bid for the gunmen to flee the scene, threw a petrol bomb into the station, which ignited the fire and affected the roof of an old building in the station.

“The fire service operatives responded swiftly and put off the fire.

“Meanwhile, patrols have been intensified in the area and within the state, further, development shall be communicated, please.”
