Gunmen on Monday morning razed the zone 13 police headquarters in Ukpo, Anambra state.

The criminals who stormed the facility in large numbers opened fire on police officers.

At least three vehicles were also razed in the incident.

The fresh attack on the police facility has raised serious concerns in Anambra as the state prepared for the governorship election slated for November 6.

Governor Willie Obiano, who addressed journalists in Awka shortly after the attack, decried the worsening security situation in the South-East, saying the state was under siege by criminals.

He said: “I call on everybody, irrespective of affiliations, to come together and support government and security agencies to fight our common enemy.

“Those who seek to destroy what we have laboured to build must not be tolerated in any manner.”
