Some heavily armed gunmen on Thursday evening attacked the Dikenafai police station in Idea to south Local Government Area of Imo State and set free some detained suspects.

A source who disclosed the incident to Daily Sun revealed that the gunmen invaded the station in large numbers and threw into the premises of the station an IED which caused part of it to go up in flames.

“We saw them, they were many, they were about twenty or more, they came in about 4 vehicles and headed straight to the station, they threw something like a bomb inside the station and there was fire everywhere ,the suspects in the cell all ran away .” the source said.
