The Imo State police command said its operatives in the early hours of Friday repelled attacks by gunmen planned on the Mbieri police station.

According to the command’s spokesman, Michael Abattam, the criminals attacked the station at about 4 am using Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

In his words: “The hoodlums who threw Improvised Explosive Devices into the station and shooting (sic) sporadically were overwhelmed by the superior firepower of the combat-ready police operatives, forcing them to retreat in panic, escaping in their vehicle.

“For the prompt response of the gallant police operatives, only minimal damage was done to a parked unserviceable vehicle and some windows due to the effect of the Explosive, no life was lost or injury sustained by the operatives and no arms/ ammunition was charted away.
