Gunmen have attacked the Anambra State Vigilante office at Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area in a spate of insecurity in the state.

Ozubulu police station was also attacked by the gunmen but the attack was repelled by the officers.

“The hoodlums who came with a Toyota Sienna vehicle and motorcycles started shooting sporadically.

“Unfortunately two yet unidentified persons sustained gunshot injury,” Tochukwu said.

He added that no police officer sustained an injury during the attack on the police station and the police building is secure and safe.

“Meanwhile the hoodlums in a bid to escape set ablaze a Toyota Corolla parked not very far from the station. An investigation is ongoing and efforts are in top gear to arrest the perpetrators of the ugly act. However, normalcy has been restored in the area,” he added.

Last week, two police officers were killed during an attack on Obosi Police station, Idemili North local government area of Anambra State.

They also razed the station and two operational vehicles.

The attacks are the latest in the series of attacks on security facilities and officials in the southeast region of the country.

The government blamed a secessionist group, IPOB, and its security arm, ESN, for the attacks but the group denies responsibility for the attacks.
