The recurring attacks on police formations continued on Sunday as suspected gunmen reportedly killed three policemen during an attack on Nsukwa Police Divisional Headquarters, Aniocha South LGA.

Ripples Nigeria gathered that the attack, which occurred around 1.00am, led to collapse of parts of the roof of the police station.
