The armed bandits also razed the police building.
The spokesman of the Imo State Police Command, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed the incident to newsmen.
This comes two days after gunmen invaded the country home of the state governor, Hope Uzodinma in Omuma, Oru East Local Government Area of the state.
During the attack, they burnt part of the building and razed some vehicles in the compound, killing at least a security official.
According to the Commissioner of Information in the state, Declan Emelumba, the attack was repelled by a combined team of security operatives attached to the house.

“Gallant security operatives this morning repelled an attack on the Omuma country home of the governor of Imo State, Sen Hope Uzodimma,” he said via a statement.
