The Anambra State Police Command has announced that it has averted a planned attack on the Divisional Headquarters in Nneni, Anaocha Local Government Area of the state.

In the early hours of Thursday, some unidentified criminals broke into the police station and threw explosive devices, causing part of the structure to fire.

According to a source and a local, the hoodlums attempted to release some convicts at the facility but were unsuccessful since personnel of the force on duty resisted the onslaught.

When contacted, Tochukwu Ikenga, the command’s spokesperson, acknowledged the incident but said no one was killed and the attackers were apprehended.

“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,” Ikenga said.
