Barely 48 hours after unknown gunmen attacked the Police Command in Imo, bandits again razed the Police division in Ehime/Mbano in the state, setting some vehicles on fire on Tuesday.

The Police Spokesman in Imo, SP Orlando Ikeokwu confirmed the attack on the police division to our reporter.

The attack occurred few hours after the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, the former Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and other government functionaries visited the state to inspect the attacked facilities.

However, the PPRO said no life was lost in the latest attack.

“Yes I can confirm to you that the police facility was attacked today by bandits.
