Unknown gunmen have attacked the Divisional Police Headquarters situated in the Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State and freed persons hitherto detained in the station.

The incident, which happened on Monday morning, plunged the area into chaos as residents and officers scampered for safety.

The spokesperson of the Ebonyi State Police Command, Loveth Odah, confirmed the attack.

She said the command has sent officers to the affected station.

She was unable to give details of the attack, however, according to reports, operational vehicles were also set ablaze by the hoodlums while some officers sustained bullet wounds.

The attack may not be unconnected to the current unrest in some parts of the southeast following the declaration of a sit-at-home order by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
