For the umpteenth time since January, gunmen attacked another police station in Imo State late Wednesday, sources confirmed to Channels Television.

Mbieri Divisional police headquarters located at Mbaitoli local government area of Imo state was the latest victim.

According to sources, the gunmen vandalised the police building and freed suspects in detention.

They reportedly arrived in the late hours of Wednesday night with sophisticated weapons and shot sporadically before gaining access into the police facility.

About two police officers were injured and another reportedly kidnapped.

The Imo state police command has confirmed the incident.

He also confirmed that some suspects in the police custody were freed.

The attack on Mbieri Divisional police headquarters is the seventh police station to be attacked by gunmen in Imo state between January and April, which includes the attack on the Imo state police command headquarters on Monday.
