Despite the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra’s (IPOB) sit-at-home order, violence continued in Imo State.

Hoodlums burned down the Amandugba Divisional Police Headquarters in Isu Local Government Area on Monday.

In less than a week, four police facilities have been destroyed in the state.

Upon arrival, the attackers threw flammable substances at the police station.

Our correspondent spotted a video of the police station burning.

“The entire facility of Amandugba Divisional Police Headquarters is on fire. The attackers  threw explosive devices and it immediately caught fire,” an eyewitness said.

Earlier, three police facilities were razed in Atta, Izombe, and Orji.

Additionally, courts were torched at Atta and a health centre was razed at Njaba LGA.

A former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, was killed in the state just 24 hours earlier.

Gunmen killed Gulak on his way to the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in Owerri for a flight to Abuja.

On Saturday night, Okiemute Mrere, a senior officer with the Nigerian Immigration Service, was assassinated along Owerri-Port Harcourt Road-Owerri.

The police spokesperson in Imo state, Bala Elkana, said he had not been briefed on the latest attack when contacted by phone.
