Suspected gunmen have killed a police officer and burnt two patrol vehicles at the Ohauku Divisional Headquarters of the Ebonyi State Police Command.


The incident was said to have occurred on Sunday night but the police authorities reacted on Monday.


Police Public Relations Officer, Loveth Odah confirmed the attack to newsmen on Monday.


She said the officer died while being rushed to the hospital for medical attention after he sustained gunshot wounds.


But the police spokesperson debunked some media reports that the gunmen freed some inmates.


According to Odah, the Commissioner of Police, CP Aliyu Garba has visited the scene of the unfortunate incident and called on people in the area to assist the police in arresting those behind the attack.


Sunday’s attack is the latest in a series of attacks on police stations and security personnel in the South-East region.
