Hoodlums reportedly set Anambra police station ablaze



Some hoodlums reportedly burnt down the Umuchu Police Station in Aguata local government area of Anambra State in the early hours of Sunday.

The police station was recently renovated by a group in the area after it was razed down during the 2020 #ENDSARS protest in the state.

Residents told journalists that the criminals stormed the facility on motorcycles at about 3:00 a.m. and set fire to the building.
