Gunmen suspected to be members of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are currently attacking the Orji Divisional Police Station in Imo State.

Shauntv gathered that the armed men stormed the station some minutes after 12pm on Tuesday.

Details of the attack are still sketchy but residents said there is heavy shooting in the area.

The incident happened hours after suspected IPOB militants attacked Iwollo Oghe Police station in Ezeagu Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Some policemen were reportedly killed in the attack while the station was razed and some vehicles were also burnt down.

Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Daniel Ndukwe, confirmed the incident but did not go into details.

Security formations and government facilities have been targeted since the outlawed group launched a campaign of violence.

Although IPOB has consistently denied being responsible for the attacks, the police have linked the armed gang to the incidents.
