Gunmen have razed another police station in Imo State few hours after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and outgoing Inspector General of Police (IGP), Muhammed Adamu left Owerri, the Imo State capital.
Osinbajo and other officials of the Federal Government, including Minister of Interior Rauf Aregbesola, had visited the state to inspect the level of damage on the burnt security facilities.
But the gunmen burnt Ehime Mbano Local Government Area Divisional Police Headquarters shortly after they left.
It was gathered on arrival at the station, the gunmen freed all suspects in detention before setting the Police Divisional headquarters ablaze.
