Unknown gunmen murder policemen, civilians in Anambra

Policemen and civilians have been murdered in Anambra State, 48 hours after the assassination of Dr. Chike Akunyili and others.

Eyewitnesses say the attack was carried out by the so-called “unknown gunmen”.

The assailants stormed Ajalli Police Station in multiple vehicles Thursday afternoon and opened fire.

Ajalli is the headquarters of Orumba North Local Government Area.

A source from DAILY POST saw footage of the attack showing the police building on fire with some people trapped inside.


Residents were trying to break them free with different items and tools.

The body of one of the officers was seen on the floor. There was a bullet hole at the back of his head, an indication was killed in an execution-style.

Anambra is witnessing repeated attacks just over one month before the November governorship election.
