Sources said the gunmen in a surprise attack arrived at 2am and swooped on the station already enveloped by the quietness of the night.
While a policeman was killed, vehicles including the DPO’s personal car were razed down
Imo Police spokesperson, Michael Abattam, has confirmed the attack, adding that the Police Commissioner, Rabiu Hussaini, had ordered investigation into the attack.
