Breaking : New Haven Police Station In Enugu Reportedly Attacked By Unknown People

………..While some parts of the police station got burnt.

 

New Haven Police Station in the Enugu metropolis has been attacked by unknown people. It was gathered that some parts of the police station were burnt, while some sources claimed many were injured and some might have died, a report THE WHISTLER is yet to independently verify. But the chief fire officer of Enugu State, Engr Okwudiri Ohaa, confirmed the fire incident at the police station Sunday night.

The state police public relations officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, could not be contacted before filing the report.

There have been cases of unknown gunmen attacking security operatives in the Southeast of late. In some of the attacks, the invaders carted away police firearms.

IPOB absolved its members from recent attacks on security operatives in the Southeast and South-South. Our correspondent in Abakaliki reports that there were cases of attacks on some police operatives and stations in the region, including Enugu, leading to carting away of firearms by the attackers.

Exonerating members of the proscribed group, IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, described the allegations as unfounded because the group ‘does not carry firearms’.

According to him, “We are not armed and have no plans to pick up arms. But should we decide to go into arms struggle, which is not an option on the table, it will not be a secret affair. We won’t depend on arms collected from any security agent to defend Biafra. That is childish and an insult to IPOB.”

He said the claims that the IPOB was responsible for alleged attacks on security operatives in Southeast and South-south was amusing, stating that those peddling such information were doing hatchet jobs.
