Awada Police Station in Obosi, Anambra State, was reportedly razed by yet-to-be-identified gunmen in the early hours of today.
The arsonists launched massive attacks on the division, which attracted timely reprisals from the military.
Consequently, no fewer than three of the arsonists were reportedly shot dead during a fierce gun battle with the military.
Other facilities including a nearby transformer were also set ablaze by the arsonists, which led to a total blackout in the vicinity during the dastardly act.
Meanwhile, attempts to reach the States Police Public Relations Officer proved abortive at the time of filing this report.
