Michael Chukwuebuka, Reporting

Gunmen have attacked the Mgbidi Divisional Police Headquarters in Imo State leaving a Police Inspector dead and another cop with injuries.

The attack occured on Friday night as gathered, causing great panic in the neighbourhood.

The hoodlums, who reportedly stormed the station in a vehicle, were engaged by the police operatives in a gun duel.

The invaders first opened fire before the police operatives on hand repelled fire for fire.

“One Police Inspector was killed during the attack. The hoodlums arrived around 9:00p.m on Friday.

“They were met with a stiff opposition by policemen who engaged them in a shootout. Unfortunately, a police officer died,” a source told The Punch.

Spokesperson for the police in the state, Micheal Abattam, confirmed the report, adding that the attackers were repelled by cops on duty.

He, however, disclosed that one inspector was killed while another sustained minor injury during the attack.

“On 14th January, 2022 at about 20:45 hours, the Command’s Tactical teams at Mgbidi Police Station repelled an attack by some hoodlums who came in a white Hilux vehicle shooting sporadically and attempted to gain entrance into the station.

“But they were repelled by the ever gallant Imo Command’s Tactical teams and the police operatives of the division who positioned themselves professionally,” Abattam enthused.
