Hoodlums burn courts, police station in Imo

Gunmen have razed Atta Divisional Police Headquarters, magistrate and high Courts and vandalized the community’s health Centre, in the latest arson in troubled Imo state.

Atta is in the Njaba Local Government Area of Imo.

The burning of the police station and courts took place between 1 and 2 am today, with the hoodlums shooting sporadically for close to an hour before hitting their targets.

John Agbaso, a former president-general of the community confirmed the incident.

“It was just one week ago that the house of the president-general of the community, Chijioke Duruonyeokwu, was set ablaze by unknown people with his wife killed”, he lamented.

The police are yet to speak on the multiple arson.
