Gunmen have again attacked the Police Command Headquarters in Owerri, a day after the jailbreak.

The latest attack was carried out on the Divisional Police Headquarters in Ehime Mbano Local Government Area, just about an hour-and-a-half drive from the state capital.

The gunmen, who came in buses and in a large number, arrived at the police station and freed all the suspects in detention before setting the building ablaze.

Orlando Ikeokwu who is the Police Public Relations Officer in the state confirmed the incident to newsmen, while insisting that the armoury at the station is intact.
